What do you all think of the idea of removing judged sports from the olympics, or making them demonstration sports only?

I think it is a terrible idea as the vast majority of the sports I enjoy watching - diving, gymnastics, synchronized swimming, even dressage and to an extent eventing since it has a dressage component - are judged sports. More importantly than my personal enjoyment, it would be a vast blow to thousands of athletes in these sports who have grown up dreaming of competing in the Olympics. Fortunately since gymnastics and diving and ice skating are marquee events, I don't see this happening.
