We have a two-tier system already.  If you're serious, you
send in a Cabrillo log - an electronic text record of your
QSOs.  If you're not serious, you send in something else or
perhaps don't send in a log.

No one complains now about Cabrillo logs, but there were
plenty of complaints seven years ago. If contest organisers
specify recordings - electronic audio records of your QSOs,
as a condition of entry, they will soon be no more of a
burden than a Cabrillo log, and they will not cost a penny

It will be the same as contesting today, and it will
still be fun.  Audio files would be just another log
verification option.
