I can understand you reasoning, but I don't think historical Pac Cup results support your theory.Or some other measurement based rule, otherwise you’re creating a culture where mediocre sailors get rewarded and better sailors get punished in the long term.

The most frequent DH winners are Ex27's and M24's, both boats with strong enough fleets that if anything, they're penalized by PHRF.
I don't think forcing everyone to a measured rule makes sense for the Pac Cup, there's too many small boats and family programs on tight budgets.
If that's not your scene, there's always the Transpac.
but yeah, I think DH2 really should be ORR.
