Default RE: Highwind / Lightwind definitions

I think those definitions are relative, and as such they may result very difficult to describe. Other factors that may get in the way are wind consistency (gusty/patchy 15 knots will require a more powerful sail/board combo than constant 15 knots), water state (heavy chop vs. flat water or long waves) and air "thickness" (15 knots in Maui are probably much different from 15 knots in Silvaplana).
Light wind or high wind are just rough guidances and probably it is better to leave them as they are.
