A worthy goal, Tree, and a logical comparison to contests, but
where would we draw the line at "assisted"? 

If I call a friend on the telephone and say, "Bob, quick--there's a ZA
station on 14.180," I've assisted him. I wouldn't do that if he was
running single-op in a contest, but I would if he was just dialing
around the band looking for DX.

It would require quite a behavioral change among DXers and their
friends to stop doing things like that.
