Based on my long and painful contest experience, all this separate/not-separate
2 RX stuff is missing the REAL need for separate categories:
Categories should be based on the number of BRAINS involved.
Multi-Brain: more than one brain used during the contest.
Sub categories of Multi-Brain:
Multi-Single Brain. Only one brain at any one time during the contest. All
other brains are off. Some contests may allow multiplier brains.
Two-Brain. Just two brains allowed, but both can be on at the same time.
Single Brain: Only one brain allowed.
Scrambled Brain: Special operating privilege allowing starting a new log at the
end of the contest.
No-Brain: Reserved for those ##%!@&^^! operators who #$%&&@?><$.
See, it's really simple.
