I think that they should go back to the 1500hr check ride for ATPL issue.
It is nuts to expect someone from a pilot factory with 200 hrs in an aeroplane (and 50 in the sim) to be at a standard "capable of commanding" a 747 with 400 souls onboard .....

By all means make the candidate sit ATP exams then and learn everything there is to know about the 737 FMS and nat tracks when they have built up some real world experiece.

....which is what many people realised years ago, pre-JAR....

Then there wouldn't be all this nonsense with the gold plated JAA IR which for the average PPL is far to gold plated.
