I have tried researching how problems are graded and there is some good mapping between the various systems, but no real description as to what to expect at each level. I think it would be great to have a guide to what the levels mean. I understand that 5b is harder than 5a. But, there should be some kind of a written description of what is “added” at each level to make it more difficult. From what I understand, the increases reflect both an increase in technical skills needed and in strength needed. For example, you don’t see any kind of dynos until at a certain level and double dynos are even further along. For many people who has studied foreign languages, you may be familiar with the level system that is globally accepted. There is a universal structure to the progression and then there are details to the specific skills needed at each level that have been produced, in order to allow people to have globally acceptable test results (https://www.sprachenatelier-berlin.de/en/article/1228.german-as-a-second...). It seems like whenever people talk about levels, it is all about gut feeling. It is as if talking about music composition without have a notation system.
