I agree with many of your arguments for a distinction between 1-radio 
and 2-radio distinction in results (just as there should be an 
indication SO vs. SOA).  However, how do you handle the FT-1000D,
since it provides fully independent receive?  Coupled with an auto-
QSY and tune amplifier (with a little station construction ingenuity), 
an FT-1000D equipped station can be QRO 2-radio station if the station 
designer and operator make full use of the capability.
