Yes, so I'm stressing the difference between retrospectively crowning a champion based upon what would have been the case (had Vitali not un-retired, whatever else) and retrospectively crowning champions based upon what did happen.

To be clear: Wladimir Klitschko never defeated a #1 contender when he was ranked as #2 or a #2 contender when ranked as #1. This is the ONLY way a Transnational champion can be crowned. That being the case there is literally no argument for crowning him TBR champion.
