Rules should be constantly changing it shows how much the sport is changing and improving. Now we have featherweights that can turnover Heavyweights, and we have heavyweight flippers that make gravity and wheely big cheese look tame.

Pete what about using something like 0.25mm Polycarbonate, and sticking some plumbers tape to it. The polycarbonate will be flexible enough to bend down to make the seel and the ptfe would reduce friction? Not sure if it will work but might be worth a shot?

From experience and from the chemical properties Ptfe (Poly-Tetra-Fluro-Ethene) is more slippery than Polythene (poly-ethene). However Poly-ethene might work better as too much slippage may be a bad thing.
