Dave,
I follow your thinkging but changing the Table Top Robot's Size 
letters would be too confusing at this point.

We might consider just calling them by the names the rules use.
This would be better in my Opinion. 

The Type A is the same size and weight as the NWRSumo rules for their 
minisumo.
The Type C is the same size and weight as the NWRSumo rules for their
standard (American) sumo robot.

Regards,
Robert L. Jordan

(about 1.1 lbs)
>   b.. Type B -- 15 cm x 15 cm (about 6"X6") -- 1 kilograms or less 
(about 2.2 lbs)
