I agree it was about time but for your last point. Haven't they been reducing the total distance of the TdF for some years now. I mean not in recent editions but it used to be ~4000-4500 kms whilst nowadays it's more like 3500 kms.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
