    If a person invests their own style they should go without rank and only refer to ranks obtained in obtained in other styles plus compeitive achievements so as to market their style. You can then rank your students anyway that you wish. The value of the rank is then dependent upon your skill as an instructor and the effectiveness of your style.
    I take back everything I said and will refer to this post as gospel forthwith.

    PS. Incidentally, I now retroactively realize this is what Omega was trying to say and I only partially understood.
