For 2013 (at least) the competition will be separate classes. But plenty of folks, myself included, will be interested in side by side comparisons. Cross country soaring is all about the flying. Any launch that is good enough to find a thermal is 'good enough' to get you started. The points come from flying, not launching or landing.
This is going to be fun.
