Furthermore, hanging out in closed guard should not score you points. If closed guard is an advantageous position for the top fighter then scoring should come naturally through what he can achieve from there.

But that's just my incoherent ramble on the subject.
I agree. A td shouldn't be seen as such an offensive weapon. What you do after is what should count (more).
