I don't think doing "dual CQs" on different bands is a very new concept. It 
just takes a tremendous amount of skill to pull it off. Another factor in this 
is that it takes a very short exchange (such as CQWW) for this to work well. 
Using this technique in other contests with serial numbers or longer exchanges 
becomes less smooth and extremely fatiguing. The fact that Dan was able to do 
this pretty much for the entire 48 hour contest is the most amazing part to me!

Imagine what the ZF2MJ score would have been from a 3 point country. Possibly 
enough to lure N5TJ out of retirement?

Running on two radios simultaneously has been done in previous years and there 
is at least one station in the Caribbean doing it in phone contests.

I agree. It's extremely impressive.  Was there a rule change that allowed this 
to happen this year, or did N6MJ and Ct1BOH come up with the idea?

Can't wait to see if my brain can do it using a simulator.
