New points system

There has been some discussion about how to promote backgammon. I propose a system similar to the ATP/WTA tennis points system and I have created a website for trying out the idea.
It's a yearly race to accumulate points.
If I get positive feedback from members of BGO, I would be happy to run it.
I need feedback from you saying which tournaments should be included. I think it could be all the recognised open tournaments in the world (I don't know how many there are).
I would also need the co-operation from TD's to fill out a results form.
Please have a look and give any feedback. Obviously there is no live data in it but if some of you would like to register we can do some testing. Ideally, I would like to have this running for the start of 2015.
Also, feedback on the points system please. I have taken it from tennis because it is simple to understand and implement.
And please let me know if this is a stupid idea because I don't want to waste time my time on a vanity project.
