Sounds fine to me, if someone can code the resolution script for it. I
could trivially confirm that no one overspends points when I receive

Maybe all one has to do with this system is add up points, though, eh?
In other words, relative ranking comparison is moot, as the points
allocation makes the ranking an absolute: the sum of allocated points.

I can dig it... which means there's five math experts on the way to
explain how it's busted.

Anyone got a stat degree...?
