But I might be convinced to go to 85 sq inches.
Totally agree. The four rules of the OP are terrible.

Just have polarized conditions as it always was and use 65 s.i. wooden racquets or at most 80-85 s.i. graphite racquets from the late 70s and beginning of the 80s.

Then we would see a totally different top-5 (from the current top 5, probably only Federer would still be top 5 in this case).

Seriously, I would love it!
