Hmmm...if you will be strict about it, a colony woud send the best physical
specimen in the best gundam -- thereby disqualifying anyone with any sort
of physical infirmity or problem, much like the Uberman idea. If the
gundams were neurallly wired though (thus not needing the virtual reality
suits a la Daimos), then there would be a possibility that a pilot could be
physically challenged

Hmmm...I think that would depend on the colony's concept of battle...a
transformable system would be quite useful for some.
