Comment (by daveshine):

 I strongly agree with the OP that the grading should be removed. While in
 my opinion a lot of stuff in Site Health and especially on the Debug Info
 screen is super useful - especially also for plugin authors/ support, I
 see a disconnection between the grading and all the info provided below

 There might be - a lot? - users who will interpret the grading also for
 Debug Info screen because the grading is currently "globally" displayed on
 this admin page (with those 2 tabs).

 And my own experience was and is also, that the grading is misleading and
 has no real value. I also don't know how it is really calculated and how
 the data that goes into calculating is weighed/ interpreted internally. I
 guess that everyone of us also would interpret the importance of certain
 data differently.

 The grading makes this whole - generally good - thing much more
 complicated on second sight and thought. Therefore we should remove it and
 release the overall feature without it. Especially the "obsessing to reach
 100%"-factor for the average user is a risk way too high.
