Well, I guess it has to be (easiest to hardest)
5B-WAZ
5B-DXCC
DXCC Honor Roll

Beyond "Mixed DXCC Honor Roll" lies
- Honor Roll on individual bands
- Honor Roll on individual modes
- Mixed Top of the Honor Roll
- Top of the Honor Roll on individual bands
- Top of the Honor Roll on individual modes
- the DXCC Challenge DeSoto Cup

They have a funny way of defining "All"! Maybe it's like what the definition of "is" is...

Maybe it should be "WAAZ" Worked Almost All Zones!

Wow, I am at 148 towards a goal of 150 for 5B WAZ.  That is confusing...only 30 needed on 160 meters, only 150 needed for 5BWAZ.

I believe 6 meter WAZ requires only 25 zones.  The difference between the entry level and full achievement level for these WAZ awards is as least as great as the difference between basic DXCC and Honor Roll. 

For me, having the 5B WAZ certificate on the wall is simply a reminder what I'm striving for.  I have the utmost respect for those who have worked all 200 zones.  I arranged a luncheon for my friend KQ0B shortly after he achieved his.  I'm glad I did, because he passed away suddenly only a few months later.

I'm not sure that ARRL has a formal Honor Roll listing for individual bands, but it would be nice if they did.  In any event, these are all worthy goals to strive for!

In one of my posts above, I mentioned, Mike, KQ0B.  I just checked, and his story of completing 5B WAZ still appears on his QRZ.com page: http://www.qrz.com/db/KQ0B

Well worth reading by anyone striving for 5B WAZ.

There are NO individual band honor roll categories; only mode categories.

I know that. Just pointing out that if you want you can look at the numbers and draw the "HR" line wherever you like...

- only 122 DXers are on the Digital Honor Roll

- only 5 DXers are at the top of the CW Honor Roll

- only 1 DXer holds the DXCC Challenge DeSoto Cup (by definition)

- there are no DXers at the top of the Digital Honor Roll

TNX, Rob.  I put up that picture to celebrate the 50th anniversary of that certificate (March 11, 1963).
