3. Composing southern songs to sing for northern categories
4. Multiple southern drums sitting at the outside edges of the arena
5. Allowing dancers to sit and sing with a southern drum
6. Passing leads more than once
7. Leaving the southern drum to drum hop
8. An influence of singers under 25 composing songs and changing the direction of southern singing.
9. Northern singers being able to sing southern songs and do a great job!
10. and in the last 25 years there is the "new" concept of individual drum groups, which wasn't common 25 years ago.

Wouldn't #4 be a matter of planning on behalf of the Committee?
