Your argument (#1) assumes that people want to change the rules to get a 
better shot at winning.  That is not the case.  I just want SOMETHING for 
working a K2.  I dont care if you and Bob beat me by an extra 500K.  
Congrats when you do.  

(#2)  Your argument assumes that you as a KR2 will work more USA guys 
than a K2 in the same contest with points given out for USA QSO's.  I 
personally dont think that is true.  I think you'll both work the same 
guys given that you and the K2 are the same in all other regards.
