I agree to some extent, but that is what makes the CYGS so special. You have to be remarkable to even have the opportunity and even then you need some luck. For Federer, that luck would have been Nadal tripping over a tennis ball during a practice session and having to sit out RG.
It didn't work out that way, so Federer from 2006-2007 has six slams instead of (possibly) eight.
