Raising the Bar on Safety

The PLZ "preferred landing zone" is here, or on the way.  

I am one vaulter who thinks this is GREAT!

But let's add to the idea.  Let's "raise the bar" on all vaulters by calling the box a Sector.  As with other sectors in track and field, performances only count when the performance is completed within the sector.  I believe we should do that here.  Let's make it so that the vault only counts if the vaulter lands safely within the "sector".  All out-of-sector landings, whether the bar stays up or not, would be counted as a failed attempt.  

I believe, with this edit to our rules and our thinking, we could abolish the weight-rule and at the same time increase the safety for the event.  Let's stop complaining about the weight-rule, and invent a better alternative.  Only with a better alternative will this bad rule be changed.

What do you think?  Let's invent the solution.
