Is this the first step towards the Official World Rankings?

Regarding the rank of those other teams, I'm not questioning the data, I'm just saying that in terms of their actual ability, they aren't quite placed where I think they deserve to be. Obviously any settled system has to stick to its rules, so I'm not saying they be moved. But any scientist/mathematician when examining a model of the real world will always look to anomalies and ask the question "Is this a fault in the measurements or the calculations, or in my system (indicating the rules MAY need to be changed), or maybe an unavoidable consequence of quite reasonable rules"?

To have such a system widely accepted these are the kinds of criticisms we have to accept and discuss constructively.
