NFHS survey --- Would you support these rule changes?

Another edition of the NFHS survey arrived in my inbox today. I've copied & pasted 11 "POTENTIAL" rule changes. They simply as you, YES or NO, would you support the following rule changes for 2018-19?

1. Allowing weigh-outs after the first night of a two-day event.

2. Eliminating the random draw and returning to starting dual meets at the 106-pound weight class.

3. Mandating that all member high schools schedule at least four basic dual meets to revive local interest in high school wrestling.

4. Allowing referees to wear gray-and-black stripe shirts during the regular season.

5. Reducing the number of weight classes to an odd number and eliminating the tie-breaking procedure.

6. Re-aligning the existing weight classes.

7. Setting different weight classes for sub-varsity wrestling.

8. Giving the referee the discretion to call an unsportsmanlike conduct call after a determined number of cautions, which could then cause a disqualification.

9. Reducing the number of weight classes for dual-meet competitions, while keeping the same number of weight classes for individual tournaments.

10. Adjusting the descent-rate portion of the weight certification program to allow wrestlers to weigh anywhere within the 1.5 percent per week descent rate.

Example: A wrestler who weighs 200 pounds on Saturday can weigh anywhere between 200 pounds and 197 pounds for the next week. This will prevent coaches from having to deal with the .1 and .01 of a pound as listed on the official weigh-in report.

11. To discourage forfeits and the practice of ducking competition during dual meets, requiring schools to submit rosters prior to a dual meet which could not be changed once submitted.
