This is what the "scholars" say about that...
It appears to come back to the "level playing field" issue...

I'm not sure your idea would work but it would sure change the content
of our annual gripe session on this topic.
Let's see now, contest xx gives the assisted guys a 25% boost to their
score to get them to admit they used packet. I don't like to use packet
but I sure wouldn't mind a better score. I know, I won't use packet but
I'll say I did.
Now all the assisted guys will start griping about the unassisted
cheaters, it being well known that these cheaters can make better scores
than the assisted guys and so don't deserve a 25% boost. "C'mon, let's
make this a level playing field!!" Too funny.
