You also have the ability to accept a QSO whether it's actually in your
log or not.  Say P5XYZ busts WI9WI's call & submits an eQSL record with
my call in the "station worked" field  Next time I log in, I see I'm
being offered a P5 QSL.  Would I reject it?  

(yes, but if I don't, who knows?)

In LotW, the QSO is automatically rejected if you don't submit a copy of
the same QSO with your log.  I only get a P5XYZ QSL if both the P5 and I
have submitted the QSO with the same band/mode/date/time.  Not being
psychic, I rather doubt I'd stand much chance of guessing when/where the
P5 busted Jim's call....  

I suppose it's a more passive rejection -- the other guy doesn't get a
notice that his QSO with you was rejected, the way he does with eQSL,
but it's rejected nonetheless.
