No, of course not.  ARRL has not required signal reports for DXCC 
confirmations for as long as I can remember.

They used to do that -- for their own contests, at least.  In fact, I 
was surprised to learn recently that they had quit.

Wouldn't it just be simpler to encourage all contest participants to 
upload their contest logs to LotW?  I suppose ARRL could do it 
internally for log files received by them, but you'd really like log 
files from *all* contests put in the LotW database.
