Should performers earn the right to perform in the West End?

This got me to thinking to how it was when I graduated. There was still the strict rule of not being allowed to audition yet alone take a West End show until you had your hours on your Equity card. Thus, by the time you had finally gained your full Equity card by doing summer season, panto, clubs etc, you had earned your right and, more importantly, your knowledge to then audition and hopefully get a West End show.
