I'd actually like to see some form of Fed Cup ranking for this purpose, however how would players win points like would Kvitova beating Ivanovic in the final be worth the same as Wozniacki beating Bowtell in Europe/Africa III

I guess the whole competition would need to be rejigged for such a rank system to work.

I however would have no issue with such a system for Olympic qualification.
