Your example holds no water, what so ever.
The rule should be no racquet bigger than 65 sq. in. and no poly strings. Just like the rule in fencing is no rifles allowed and the rule at the Tour de France is no motorcycles allowed. Just because something exists or can be made doesn't mean it should be allowed in the sport because it changes the sport. Everyone agrees that tennis does not resemble the sport it was 40 years ago and that it's completely different today. And no one is going to argue that allowing motorcycles would completely change the sport of cycling. That's why they don't allow them.
