Default Trail Difficulty Ratings

I found this site this morning that allows you to plug in the pertinent information about a trail (elevation gain and r/t distance) and it calculates the relative difficulty of the trail. The numbers don't mean much by themselves. How it helps, is to compare it to hikes you have been on previously and see where the new trail rates.
