Your plan looks acceptable to me, with a couple of qualifications.
If I take level 500 and pass it, am I then called a "level 500"?
What happens if we add a level 100* later? Someone who comes along
later has to pay more dues than I did to get to the same level? Or
would we charge me a test fee for 100* when we make it available, but
I don't have to take it? Neither of those seems quite right... did you
have something in mind? That should be handled delicately.
However, it seems easier to make a simpler test than to make a more
advanced one. Personally, I see no reason why not to start from the
earliest level we consider meaningful, and obviate the above
We don't have to work on more than one or two levels at a time. We can
just start at the level 100* test, and work on the next higher only
when we're ready.
Others, what do you think?
* or whatever the earlier level may be, if not 100
