As the prices rise it will be easier and easier to get into that list. But raising the limit from 200 Million would just give us a list of movies from the current decade, so it's a lose-lose situation.

The Worldwide list is based on inflation, if they make a similar list on BOM for the US we should at least consider it.
It's the other way around: The US list is adjusted for inflation, the worldwide one is not (which makes sense, as it's hard to approximate inflation across different currencies over time).

We use tickets sold for our all time stats in our country. If everyone had done that it would be very easy.

That's actually how the US list is compiled.

No it isn't. The US inflation adjusted list estimates ticket sales based on box office info, and then converts those estimated ticket sales into current box office prices. The ticket sales are all estimates, though.
