The Kleier ranking is the official ranking of the ISF, and has been for over 20 years. Now this doesn't prove it isn't using turnips in the calculations, but there is justification to use it, particularly when we do not observe unexpected and unexplainable differences between the rankings of established players when comparing ELO and Kleier.
I agree that the methodology should be published. And if it using turnips we should probably come up win a new one.
Until the methodology is published, I expect my rating of 9000 to be used. My ranking system has been in place for the 22 years since I was born, so it's reliable.
What is the motivation for using Kleier ratings, some form of ELO measurement is good enough for seeding purposes.
