While I admire this line of thought, I have to disagree. Scoring needs to be as objective as possible, and IMO this is not really objective. For instance, one could just as easily argue the opposite:

"the FIRST KD had more "momentum shift" because it happened with lots of time left in the round, whereas the second KD happened closer to the bell, so the guy who went down second had to survive for less time."

The KD's should cancel each other out, end of story.
