I have never read about that.
Anyway poor use of 80,000 points as difference in status benefits from 1 level to the next is limited. Gold (OW sapphire) & Plat (OW E) for lounge access is the most useful benefit to many people.

QF have been know to comp renewal if you are close. Some people have said it is a 3 year rolling SC average.

The big problem for some people not living in Australia/NZ, or the regions where QF/JQ fly, is having 4 QF or eligible JQ flights in 12 months. The QF forum gets threads on that topic every few months.

Edit:- surfergold's other thread on basically the same topic

Edit 2:-
