Most of the questions you just asked were given a thorough and thoughtful discussion in this recent thread: http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=317475

For my part, I see nothing wrong with original designs and recreations competing on the same footing. It's not that hard for judges to consider accuracy when it's an applicable factor of a costume's awesomeness and ignore it as a factor when it's not.
