If this is what organizers really think and not what they are saying for 
possible other reasons: why don´t they stick to this logic  - and get 
rid of LP- and QRP-categories? They are not controllable (even to a 
lesser extent than packet/cluster use - I don´t remember a DQ based on 
power-cheating, but the recent DQ about cluster use was undisputed, 
wasn´t it?). Using the argument "not controllable" to abolish unassisted 
categories but continuing power categories means double standards (I 
still wouldn´t like to see power categories vanish even if I sometimes 
have doubts about some results).
To continue with a lot of categories (and the somehow motivating awards 
etc.) mostly based on truth&honour or ending with one open category for 
all with all relevant information (operating time, power, SOxR, 
assistance, basic antenna info in a scoretable-file) only added for 
better comparison but not distributing awards?
