When playing around with inequality measures (as used i.e. in
sociology), I got the idea, that one could use the computation
of the MacRae disparity as defuzzification:

Disparity measures could be regarded as "crisp" representations
of "fuzzy" distributions. It also is possible to concentate
disparity measures of several systems into one disparity
measure for an unified system:
