Create the Cruiserweight Division

I have long advocated (on this board and other places) for the creation of a cruiserweight division. I've decided that since we are opening this section up (and since I've been here forever) I might be the first to take her for a spin with an argument that seems well worth having.

So the propositions on the table are this:

1) Mainstream MMA needs a division between the heavyweight and lightheavyweight division.
2) That division should be a cruiserweight division @ 235 pounds.
So, let's have at it!

EDIT: You can disagree with the second part of that. That is my division and, though reasoned, I've heard other numbers. If you do have another number, though, justify it. I will justify mine in due course.
