Perhaps giving the same weight to prestige as the draw quality is not fair. In this way the AUS Open (and many amateur slams) already gets 4 points, even without a Top8 participant.
I think this system is too rude.
In 1975 you put the Australian Open ahead the WCT Finals only because it was entered by no. 1 and no. 2. What about the fact that the third seeded was the world no. 26
? There are really no reasons to put the 1975 Australian Open over the WCT Finals that year.
I also don't like the 1970-72 scores.
