Here's something I've never understood. Let's say that, in the current rules, you have Great Sword +5. Why not represent this as Great Sword 2W9 and take the +5 auto-augment when appropriate? Then, if the sword gets dinged up in the big fight, maybe it falls down to a 1W19 (if your style of play is that gritty). Or, if you get it enchanted, it goes up to 3W1. Why the different mechanic? Was the point to limit it to extended contests?
