Whoa!  I think most favor the rules being enforced, not just doing away with 
packet because contesters sometimes break that rule.  If we follow that logic 
we should do away with the 10 minute rule, because sometimes contesters break 
it - we should do away with power categories, because sometimes contesters 
break that rule.  Where does it stop?  K1TTT has shown us techniques for 
identifying potential self spotters.  I think the contests sponsors need to 
take action on this empirical information, not the kind of "it seems to me" 
information you talk about.
