Is this the first step towards the Official World Rankings?

By the way, if there is any of the international Footy Leagues that haven't made it onto my ranking and has played an 'International' or 'Test' that they believe meets the criteria that we have indicated in our preamble, please, provide WFN with the Date, Scores of both teams and the Home Team. Also if possible the composition ratio (nationals : aussies/others) of the respective teams and, if this information is verifiable we will add that match to the data and publish a revised Ranking based on that additional data.
I wish to keep the system as accurate and fair to all nations as possible. That is: all teams playing under the same conditions in the era's we have indicated.
eg. a team playing a few 9-a-side matches with 4 or 5 aussies in the side as opposed to another team playing full 18-a-side games with only the reserves being aussies, being ranked together will not and cannot produce reliable indicators of future or even current performance.
I hate to use the term but "level playing field" is how many descibe it.
If we can get all the data as "level" as possible then a reliable measure of the nations current relative strength in the footy world is possible and even desirable( avoiding matching teams like New Zealand and India in IC's for example).
I am open to any constructive comment especially from the International Leagues so the system can be fine tuned an made more reliable.
