As players get more and more used to this system, the players who stratle the borders will act as a drain for a the group. say the best of the cooks for example. all cooks are playing all cooks, and one manages to take enough of the other cooks' points to become a cadet, but then gets several losses, and pushed back down to a cook. now there are the same number of cooks with x fewer points, and same number of cadets with x more points. this will eventualy cause an upward drag of points. it may be small (conqueror of 6500 points or so) but will happen.
You are looking into one of the borders and see the point drainage.
But there is another border too, for the players who are going down in rank. That will happen and they will bring points back into the level.
Essentially as HardAttack has said - total point amount will remain the same as in the current system.
If you are referring to the pure fact that the points migrate from cook cadets, then essentially the same thing is happening now too. If the cook will play better then cadet, then the points will migrate back to cook, and cook becomes the cadet
