Lets step back a bit, and see what is *technically possible - today*.
A person could operate from all 40 zones in the CQWW - in one sitting, by
connecting to 40 different stations and operating remote.
Six ops - sitting in one room - could operate from six different continents
- at the same time. I think we can all see a bunch of red flags with this,
but it is *technically* possible.
A person could drive to a MM, and operate part of the contest. Drive home,
and operate from home, using his own call.
The one way to address this would be: a person can only operate with one
call/contribute to one station for the duration of the contest.
This way, if you are operating remote - you are committed to that operation
- for the duration of the contest. New contest comes along - you are free
to "move" to a different location.
The downside is - drive to a MM, operate a few hours - you can't go home
Just my two cents worth...
