I offer snapshots from Dave Hussey's 2006 WPM meet photos of
the new Details West draft gear kits:
I don't think your idea is bad, but to say it's impractical to
get all vendors behind a NMRA standard (or RP) that required them
to retool hundreds of existing models is an understatement.

This is a valid point, however there is no reason why every New model released shouldn't meet the standard. Of course until one is codified there is no standard.
