Ward, once tabulated some weighting factors accross mutiple categories. He did that using results of an ARRL DX test.

SOAB HP was around .80 in terms of competitiveness,  and if I recall correctly and SOAB(A) was 0.64

Now do the math for CQ WW CW 2011 :-)

Anyways. The WRTC board of directors can set the rules the way they think it's the best approach for the vast majority. And it seems though they are still perfectible, they kept improving over the years.
Till Finland 2002 it was just a matter of getting an invitation, till Russia station setup  and location (terrain mostly) was not exactly the same for all the teams.

So it's getting really better edition after edition.

Vy 73.

In general (I am sure there are some exceptions) - there is more competition in the high power category than the LP one.  The difference in weighting simply reflects that winning the high power category typically means more than winning the LP one (or coming in say 5th place).
