I think it should be an overlay to the "normal" M/S.

Isn't this what's already in "normal" M/S? Of course depending on
contest their might be additional limitations in "normal" M/S like
number of band changes which your definition doesn't have ... so making
it even more like "classic" M/2 than M/S.
But from what I understand what people want for "Classic M/S" is just
one radio. Period. No loopholes then concerning multiplier radio (or
several therof as the case today), just one single radio allowed.
Nothing else. That's it.

I think so, too. We are just a small group of 2-3 contesters locally and
with "Classic M/S" I could really imagine to do an multi OP. With the
current M/x categories we could never be competetive so rather run 2 (or
sometimes 3) single OP single band entries instead (which is fun, too).
