... And yes - I know the callsign is part of the exchange in the Sprint.   
That's not the point.    

The point is 'Dit Dit' is a commonly accepted way of acknowledging confirmation 
of a QSO, just like 'TU' is, or 'TU KE3X'.   Over 48 hours, sending less 
characters saves time.

The decision of how often I identify is a function of my rate and the rules of 
the contest.    It doesn't matter what I choose to use as a confirmation.
