I would like to clarify that my idea was a series of Crown Tourneys that
are as _open_ as the current single Crown Tourney.  Lord Leifr suggestion
that Coronet Tourneys lead to a King would require a change in Corpora
as well as dividing all of Atlantia into Principalities.  Lord Jonathan's
regional-candidate idea would also require a change in Corpora.
Furthermore, I believe that regional competition for tangible results
(rather than brag rights) fosters Bad Blood.
