Thank you for sharing these great observations. I agree that
measurement is a challenge. However, albeit not perfect, we do have some
tools available. For example, multi-attribute utility analysis is one of
them. The application of this approach allows for, as an example, an
evaluation of whether the use of test-score banding makes sense in a
specific context and organization based on the broader
organization-level goals mentioned in your message and also based on the
perspective of various stakeholders. This approach is discussed in
detail in the following source (available in pdf format at
http://mypage.iu.edu/~haguinis --click on the "book chapters" link):

Aguinis, H., & Harden, E. (2004). Will banding benefit my
organization? An application of multi-attribute utility analysis. In H.
Aguinis (Ed.), Test-score banding in human resource selection: Legal,
technical, and societal issues (pp. 193-216). Westport, CT: Praeger.

All the best,
