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.

73, Guy.
