One thing to remember is that the primary use of benchmarks is to equate NTRP levels across local areas. The district, sectional, and national playoffs is the only time (in league play) that people play out of their local area. It attempts to do the impossible of making a 3.5 in CA similar to a 3.5 in NY; or a 3.5 in one part of GA similar to a 3.5 in another part of GA. While not perfect, it does work better than having no equalizing in place.
