If you don't submit a log for scoring, you can theoretically do what you
want.  But, it would be bad form to sign /T if you aren't really one.

If a multi-single is operated by or even helped by a General or higher
class licensee, they should not sign with the /N or /T.  After all, it's
not really in the spirit of things.

At least that's my opinion.
