Sounds like DXCC has the problem, not CQ WW. Since I do not participate in the
DXCC program I don't concern myself with what happens with my logs after they
are submitted to the contest sponsors vis-a-vis DXCC credit.
DXCC needs to change their policy on what is acceptable for country credit,
apparently, as CQ WW is the contest that has the most participation from the
most rare counters on a year by year basis.
CQ WW should proceed on whatever path they believe is right for the fairest
adjudication of logs and not consider what DXCC rules are. It's their contest,
not the ARRL's.
I think we're going to just have to agree to disagree on this point.
