That's correct, but this thread is about who is "stronger" not who would beat whom in a fight. When talking about who is "stronger", or who has more "power", you can make a linear list. That doesn't mean those shinobi above the others would lose to those below them due to specific advantages, however.
Well yes, if I beat you in a fight I am stronger than you....so how can you make a list.
As an example.... Anko > Kurenai > Hanabi > Anko....so how do you decide who goes where?
The most important thing to a shinobi. That is, "a heart that withstands and endures."
His heart has stopped, every cell in his body has renounced life.
Even then, Jiraiya does not give up.
How does it not count as having more power? It is YOUR power that gives you those advantages.
But again, Naruto isn't a manga where you can make a numerical list because there is no set power.
A can beat be and lose to C while C beats B etc.
It just doesn't work. Not to mention we can't be sure who would be who in a lot of cases anyway.
I think you can if you base it on the skill of the Shinobi rather then their fighting ability in any given match up. Fighting Ability in any given match up is up and down the list rapidly like you said. An extreme example is that Tayuya could probably beat Pain simply because she could start the match and cast her Sound Genjutsu on Pain binding every single one of them and just take her time killing them with basic ninja tools or Doki.
However based on Skill we can make a linear list. Your not going to be seeing Tayuya spam high level Ninjutsu like Pain because she isn't on the level of skill or mastery of the ninja arts. And we can compare this with every character. If we remove them from a battle scenario where there are other factors i think there can be made a rough linear ranking such as this one.

All Characters are counted in their strongest form we've seen. For example Minato is counted as his Edo reincarnated self, Obito is counted as his Juubi Jin self, etc...
