I'll try to keep my comments to observations rather than ridicule out of respect...

From what I've noticed in Tennessee (USEWF), these are the most obvious I' saw from many of the higher ranking wadoka:

1)Stripes to signify dan level
2) holding breath throughout entire kata (red faces, pulsating veins, obvious tension in muscles throughout kata to show power)
3) the use of "osu"
4)the use of "osu" to represent a kiai in the middle of kata
5) many thunderous kias in the middle of kata
6) no "cool" gi rubbing sound
7)flailing elbows

If you want more, I'd be happy to give ;)
