My only complaint about these divisions is I think the weights are too low. Men should be 225 lbs and women should be 175 instead of our local 200 and 150 respectively. However, most women won't enter as Athena anyway due to the stigma of being overweight.
I worked with a woman (fellow trainer) who used to brag all the time that she was 1st in her division all the time - but neglected to follow that by telling people she competed Athena (at 160 lbs and 5'9"). She could finish a 5k in 28-30 minutes and barely break 28kph on a bike but she won every time because there would only be 3 people in her group, and the other two would truly be overweight.
