No...the WA is slightly smaller than the BS/ADI/etc helmets yes, but it has all the details required for lvl1 approval.
And that is what counts, so far there is no indications that the CRL will be revising its lvl1 approval to eliminate (among others) the WA bucket.
There is some difference yes, but so is there on almost all helmets (including the BS helmet, its equally far from accurate in another direction)
Adi2.0 to the left and WA to the right.

so you seel they all are similar enough, and accurate enough, but if you would elimintate WA then even the BS would be "wrong" in its own direction..
so pick whatever bucket fits your price range and make sure it has the details from the crl
The helmet is painted in dark gunmetal grey or gloss black.
The helmet is asymmetrical and has 5 chrome/silver ridges contouring the eye opening that transition into various ridges on the cheek areas.
The wearer's eyes and face are blacked out with sheer material or a dark lens which is matte and reflects minimal light.
The helmet is proportional to the wearer.
Especially the last point.
If youre a huge guy, the WA might not fit proportionally, as does some bobblehead buckets (edi is an example) wont fit a smaller frame.
As any costume, when in post a link/pic and ask before throwing down money.
