What do you think of the Competitive Skill Rank (CSR) system coming to Halo in April?

Personally, I don't think that the CSR is going to add much to Halo. It is just going to be a rank that only you can see via Waypoint. Regardless of what CSR rank you are, you are still just going to be rank 130 in Halo. What I think 343 should do is when you reach 130 you are then able to join ranked playlists. This way, you will have a lot of time and experience with Halo by the time you are able to join the ranked playlist. Once you start playing in the ranked playlists, the only way you can advanced in rank is through skill or maybe a combination of xp and skill. This will extend the 130 ranks to 180 or how many so there are in CSR. Also, instead of just getting a higher number for ranking up, like it is right now, you should start getting names for the ranks. For example, 131 is Captain, 136 is Commander, 141 is Lt. Colonel and so on and so forth (similar to the Halo 3/Reach system). This could also mean that instead of having your last specialization name stuck under your Spartan/ID tag such as Pathfinder, Rouge or Stalker (probably the worst) you could be a General or Legend. I think this would make Halo better and more competitive. Imagine, you see a team made up of 170s and 180s and you know that they mean business. Anyway, this is just my opinion, what do you guys think of the CSR?
