    You mean like the Olympics so that the same guy who wins the sprints gets two golds.

    One person could hold a maximum of 6 titles at once depending on scheduling.

    I think Mikhail Botvinnik was right to begin with, all this blitz stuff is a poor indicator of one's chess skills. It's tailor made for those with short attention spans. Call me old fashioned, but playing fewer games with deeper analysis on each is always better.
