I donīt think that Plushenko participated in 2002 Worlds?

You're right. http://www.icecalc.com/events/wc2002/results/SEG064.HTM

This was just gorgeous, inspiring skating: 1998 World Pro-Am Artistic


There is a lot of just plain stroking before each jumps. That would not fare so well with CoP.

That wasn't even designed to be a competition program. It's a show program, performed here in the context of an "artistic" competition.

Not quite 4 minutes (right between junior and senior ladies long program length), with 4 jumps (no combos), two spins, and let's say one spiral sequence. No step sequence and fewer jumps and spins than one would expect to find in a long program. So there's plenty of time to do extra spirals and other field moves and to take her time selling each of the moves.

Suppose someone did choose to leave out half the allowed elements in a long program and to concentrate on the in-between skating and program components instead, especially if that skater was best at everything else besides the jumps and spins. How high could the components go for excellent performance of a program with sparse elements? How well could high PCS make up for doing only half as many elements as the other competitors? High GOEs on the elements the skater did do would help.
