Perhaps people from 2003 know more of the story.https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/history/files/regulations_history2008.html said:Art. 9a/d, added 3x3x3 Cube Multiple Blindfolded as an official event.
Art. 9a/d, removed Siamese Cube, Rainbow Cube from the events. Not enough interest from the community for these events. For future versions we have to come to a method of deciding which events should be official.
Art. 9e, other events may be held during a competition, but will be unofficial and therefore not part of the official results of the competition.
And then they didn't put SpeedBLD in, and you were sad, yes?Back in the day (before 2007), there wasn't an official list of events, and the line between official and unofficial events was blurrier.
Cubers knew about clock (presumably because it was made by Rubik's, and could be speedsolved), so they held it at competitions. I wasn't there, so I don't know if this was an obvios choice, or more of a historical accident like feet. But since then, it's stayed.
Perhaps people from 2003 know more of the story.
