100 point rating bands

I have been wondering for a long time if 100 point rating divisions would make a difference to get divisions starting faster.

I do believe that most of the divisions really do only comprise players within a 100 point rating band. It is rare to see players spread evenly between say 2199 and 2001. If a group of 2050 to 2005's join, three 2170's are not going to join.

So perhaps the number of divisions need to be increased with rating divisions of 100 be created?

Just to nicely illustrate my point, rapid m is forming with everyone between 2100 and 2200, even though the group is 2100 to 2299.

To be honest, I have no idea or almost... As far as I can remember, ICCF does not have such limits, IECG always used the 200 points rating division. We could also wonder what about a 50 points rating division.

But for a coherence purpose (and not by lazyness), I wouldn't favor such a BIG change :)
