Take it further, what happens when your competitor changes a suspension pick up point and that different car is dramtically different. That's what is important to stress to the n00bs who don't understand why SCCA classes are seperated the way they are.
No no, I get it.

My point, (and this goes around in circles at my local club every year) is WRX/STi's show up (usually noobs) jump into SM and the ALK conversation always comes up and I have to explain. I usually dont even care if they do stay in SM because they are rarely a threat.

In the end there are other legal ways to gain caster than changing the lower suspension pickup geometry.
