BC and LD

I think BC means a lot to all of us at the time, but only people who truly
involved in the sport, like Heidi, can really recite the BC's.  It would be
nice if the introduction to the sport (LD) emphasized BC more than it seems
to (from someone who doesn't know).  Is there ever any thought of having
LD's ranked in order of BC and NOT in order of finish?  If it's already
being done, is it done regularly?  I would just think that for LD that's the
part you want people to really strive for.
