I haven't been paying close attention---I doubt I'll play any more Worlds, whatever is decided.

Wouldn't that mirror the Selinske?

I don't think so. If I read it correctly, it was also done in 2004 (Des Moines) and 2008 (Kalamazoo). Perhaps other times as well.

If the event draws 2 more people because of it's higher-tier status, that will more than replenish the payouts.

It's true, it's real money, but in the decision of whether to sanction as a B-tier,...

Here's one way:

If you have 50 Ams at $50 each, that's $2,500. You give $2,500 worth of payout, valued at retail---that's 100%.

But you only pay $1,800 wholesale costs for that merchandise. ...

Why not just leave it as a "best practice", and let players choose whether to attend events on courses without accurate signs, or run by TDs who don't provide them, if it matters that much? Heck,...

Luckily for me, I can judge distance as far as I can throw. More and more holes exceed that---courses are getting longer, my arm is getting shorter---so it hardly matters. I'm just throwing as far...

Comparing a poorly-designed par-4s & -5s with well-designed par-3s?

Likewise, a well-designed par-4 will create better scoring separation than a poorly-designed par-3.

We have Par 4s & Par 5s that give players multiple chances to screw up. That attempt at a great recovery shot is sweet if it works, but might mean double-bogey, or worse, if it doesn't.

No one right answer. There should be courses that are par 54 and par 60 and par higher, to suit the range of players and desires.
