This is going to make the so called 'prohibitively expensive' classes like the Star, Soling etc look like pocket money:

It will epitimise what non sailors already say about sailing - expensive and elitist.

Will there ever have been an Olympic event that is so expensive and complex ?

Given it used to be in meter classes, yes. But yes, looks expensive.

Firefly 2324, Lightning 130, Puffin 229, Minisail 3446

I thought the Olympics where supposed to be drug free

50% of sailors sail offshore keel boats
Round the word races are spectator sports
Participation cost will be low

Completely bonkers, 

World Sailing says the D-zero distracts from athleticism because of adjustable mast rake and trailer options but adding lead is athletic.
