I'm the logchecker for the Michigan QSO Party, and write logging
software as well. I've never heard of any "standardization" effort. If
the instigators of this want to gain wide acceptance, then they should
make it know to those who have the most invested. Also, I doubt that
many contest sponsors are interested in reworking their scoring
practices. Most of these events already have standard county lists
appropriate for their state.
I don't even understand what a "2x4 county abbreviation" is.
