the answer is simple: by following the rules which separate the M/M class
from the M/S class. 
There is no rule against having many different transceivers for searching and
working multipliers. Just follow the rules about TRANSMTTING with only one TX
at a time.
The problems start when those MULT stations start calling CQ (an unpleasant
topic that has been covered here many times)
I think IQ4A (and some others) are making a very serious M/S effort. There is
no reason to suspect cheating only because the have such a big set-up!!
