I like your proposed setup .... but what would the difference be, between Rapid and Blitz ... ? ? ?

I'm guessing some sort of a time-per-move factor .... No ? ? ?

I think Rapid is usually 25m + 10s/move and Blitz is 5m + 3s/move

Yifan Hou is currently competing to be Carlsen's challenger in 2018. That is what prompted my idea.

Oh ... Okay ! This sounds to be an already established time control. Shows me how little I knew ... :(
