Think about an eventual P5 activation, a mega one, with lots of ops.
The likelyhood that many of them will not have P5 already confirmed, is
a real possibility. They will be there making a lot of people happy, but
not adding that ATNO themselves, unless another ham operate from their
home station. And P5 being what it is, another activation may take a few
generations to happen again.

Tim Pettis, KL7WE (SK), in chasing WAS on 432, was known to visit needed rare
states with a portable EME station, put it on from there, and work his own
station (as well as others) to get credit for those states. Another ham would
operate his home station. This action of visiting ops operating stations of
guys on DXpeditions continues to this day and contacts made like this should be
and are considered to be completely valid. You should consider re-evaluating
the contacts made by your good friend.
