Well the bands get replaced every x number of years dont they? I saw something about the next band being retired in 2016ish. So even though the bowl at the top isn't the original, it, along with the smaller bands at the top are the only permanent parts. So eventually each band currently on the cup will be retired. This is so the Cup doesn't become so big it can't be handled. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's how I understand it. This might just be completely nitpicking about the definition of "original", but I wanted to ask anyway.
