Is it possible to use calculate rules instead of tabe-rate.csv??

As I know, there have 200 countries, and weight should be 0 to 0.5kg, 1kg, 1.5kg, 2kg, 2.5kg...... to 10kg..... to 100kg ..... 
If I set the shipping charge is free when the weight is over 50kg (just two cartons)
The weight parameter may have 100 per country (not include the cities option of each country)
That means the tablerate.csv has over 20,000 lines

I think it will be better if control it by rule
For example:
shipp 4.6kg goods from HK to USA, via DHL. the charge rule is first 0.5kg USD30 + USD10 per extra 0.5kg
So Total shiping charge = ( total goods weight - first 0.5kg) * USD10 + first 0.5kg charge
= (4.6kg - 0.5kg) * USD10 + USD30
= USD71
The rule can be designed by yourself simply.
Any idea abou the table-rate.csv ???
