In theory, yes -- I think there was some comment about solving the class
problems by decreeing everyone to be Vor, at one point.

In practice, I suspect that Gregor might actually _not_ want to do it,
even for a major hero, because he would rather honor a non-Vor -- instead
of giving more weight to the "Vor r better'n u" mindset that some old
Vor have.

I could be wrong, but I'm betting it'd take some amazing political 
requirements to have Gregor decree someone Vor, these days.
