What I've heard in the past is that, if you can do more than one rep, then the weight isn't the most challenging possible weight for you, and thus the incremental points decline with each rep. (This explanation probably makes more sense for a weight that you can bust out 6-10 reps of.) In any case, my workout decisions aren't driven by points. To me, the points are useful as a gauge of my personal progress over time, not against others. So I'd actually prefer if they didn't make radical changes to the scoring system.

Ah, good point. The system is definitely not giving you an accurate gauge of your progress over time.
