Agree here, although it might be interesting to have a player with just the one rating but know what their component ratings are at singles vs doubles. From a captaining and match-up standpoint, this could be great information.

This is already done, although I don't know specifics, through the benchmark calculations. Matches played against benchmark players do count for more, and all players at sectionals and nationals are benchmark by definition. If anyone has more information on this part of the year-end calculation, would love to hear it.
