Thats the whole argument. Therefore rather than using SD as a strict formula to determine tiers, I think there is probably a better way that a strict formula base would more than likely hinder.

I also want to add that a tiered approach is only based on SD - but it isnt locked into the strictness of it. Using a tiered approach and using a SD approach are not the same thing.

I would expect a lognormal distribution, which is still normal, just not symmetrical, regardless of position depth.
