I agree with you completely. I only brought up sanctions because I have seen it elsewhere listed as a possible deterrent to inconsistency.
The fact of the matter is that regulating manufacturer inconsistency is not a viable option for the PDGA. As jeverett stated, this lies in the hands of competitors. Unfortunately, I think it is going to be a long time until players are questioning the weights of other players' putters.
