"So their is no direct evidence that he had taken the drug at time of the team's earlier wins. That does give some basis for not extrapolating to deleting his team's earlier wins." Does this logic apply to cheating case? :)

Court of public opinion is working again ... Peg, are you arguing that for as long as WBF does not take care of F/N, it cannot penalize anyone who violates CoC?
IMP Pairs?
Let us start from that 101-100 game between two close teams. Assume now we have a third and much weaker team. Are you happy with the outcome that if the losing team scoring 100 beats the weak team by 40 points, and the winning team scoring 101 beats the weak ...
IMP Pairs?
Imagine a sports league (NBA, MLB, etc.), the champion is decided by aggregate point/goal difference, not the games won/lost. It is fun, but not necessarily "fair" (in the sense of letting the strongest win).
