What is smart Booking??
Yes there are some methods to get confirmed or RAC bookings in some train instead of wait list but these tricks and methods will be gained by some one only because of experience and time devoted to search confirmed bookings. The logic is simple try to book ticket between those pair of station from which it is available rather than to being bounded to only a single combination.
Devote some time in different trains to search these, you will get them.
Although it may be costly(some times costly than tatkal) but it is...

Dear Mr Pravin Kapadia
Plz do not mind my words, I was not intended to hurt you. I was just trying to convey the thing if you try with certain logics of smart bookings you will be able to book confirmed or RAC ticket instead of Wait listed one.
I also agree 100 % with you that PQWL may even get confirm in this case while the RAC remains RAC upon charting.
One more point I forget to mention with Wait listed tickets passenger is not authorized to board the train in reserved class.
Either from E ticket or PRS ticket.
Although people misunderstand that with PRS wait listed tickets they are authorized to board the reserved compartments.
Mr Kapadia, Most of us here have done an extensive analysis if train bookings and WL progressions. By looking at passenger trend, one can analyze whether a particular WL shall get confirmed or not.
When I advise for PQWL will get confirmed or not, I also check how many berths are currently vacant in GN quota.
I am also agreed to your logic.
Examples of "smart bookings"
Book using a different starting station, ending station or both to get confirmed berths.
Dont spend money on booking in GN quota, or unnecessaily going for Tatkal when you...

Yes, important guidelines for availing Lower Berth Quota is only 1 passenger per PNR. Even if 2 passengers, both Senior Citizens, book in same PNR, they are not given the Lower Berth Quota. They both need to book seperately to avail that quota.
Can 03 ladies book for Ladies Qta in a single PNR?
3 ladies can get booking under a single pnr in ladies quota if 3 or more than 3 berths are available at the time of booking.
In case of WL,
- In the last RL quota section of the train, the more you delay the ticket starting station, the more the chances of confirmation.
- In the first RS quota section of the train, the more you advance the ticket ending station, the more the chances of confirmation.
