"certainly it is true that the really big stations have a special 
responsibility to ensure they aren't just
trampling the little fellas."

Why is this a special case? A QRP station in New England have a better signal 
into Europe than a station in the Upper midwest; where does the "special 
responsibility" lie then? If making a big score means digging out many weak 
(ostensibly QRP) signals, then doesn't another QRP station have the potential 
to "trample" my run frequency? I personally don't think anyone deserves special 
treatment or consideration in a contest, including special sub-bands or signing 

I humbly suggest that everyone has the responsibility and requirement of making 
sure a frequency is clear before they assume they can use it, regardless of 
station size or location.
