What other simple, enforceable rule would exile the octopus without

Consider the version of the 10 minute rule now used in the California
QSO Party - Once an operator starts, that Op must remain at the
for 10 minutes. He can do anything the station is capable of - all
ops are restricted from transmitting. This effectively keeps a M/S
from having the M/M "octopus" advantage.
And how do we enforce this rule? It's pretty clear whether or not a
station has changed bands. It's in the log. Operator changes, however,
are either not logged, or are subject to manipulation without penalty.
