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).
