fwiw, last year I made > 145kMQM for <$10kMQD. I have no idea how common or rare I am.

I do enjoy DM and would be sad to see this implemented, but I'd not be very worked up about, or feel that DAL had shortchanged me. My 2016 flying is almost certainly _not_ who they want to reward with top tier status.
