 Lets look at the rule again.  "..must agree to a potential visitation at any 
time during the contest by an observer appointed by the CQ WW Contest 
Committee."  Sure in a case that warranted such, they could say this is the 
observer.  Take it or leave it.  But could they not also decide to appoint an 
officer of a local contest club or a mutually agreed to 3rd party, someone 
trusted by both sides?  The idea of contest paratroopers dropping in during the 
middle of the night makes for some lively discussion.  But seriously guys & 
gals, do you think it is that sinister?  Do the 99% of you here honestly 
believe the committee is going to ask to send an observer to your station?  I 
don't see the hysteria as being warranted.  CQWW is the best DX contest we have 
in my opinion.  If this option is needed to deter or deal with a few rotten 
apples and it improves the integrity of the competition, that's a good thing.
