Your initial thought was right, if you're a B in the eyes of any sanctioning organization you're a B in the eyes if all of them. The NETRA rider that Jack referenced was a NETRA C.

13/46 is a little high but should be fine. More common is something closer to13/50. The speeds are fairly high on ice, so there is not really an issue of needing a low gear.
