Interesting view points.  PDGA on top of things.

"T&D is not a generally acceptable risk/reward design element for the game – disc golf and ball golf alike."

Wrong.  Ball golf OB has always been stroke and distance and is a huge design element for the game.  They also label different types of hazards, also a crucial design element.  Some of these are stroke and distance, some are last place crossed, some you can play out of with additional rules being applied. 

Not saying I disagree with the PDGA increasing oversight on the "Circus golf", but claiming ball golf rules are simpler is simply not true.
