Interesting. I don't know how chess rankings are computed, but they have similar principles to what you stated. To be the best, you have to beat the best.

We laugh at gypsies, fortune tellers, and horoscopes, yet we trust baseball prospect lists.

I'm trying to come up with a system that is like what the NCAA uses to rank teams for tournament seeding. I may tinker with it a bit if an idea comes to mind.
