>PacketCluster): WB8RNY, W0VFO, K2MP, N9PQU

If they only used the cluster to send spots (others, not themselves),
and not read spots, then this (I think) is legal.  Most (all?) of
your examples, however, seem to be begging for mults/spotting

>* Entered as Multi Operator (indicating they used PacketCluster, but 
>what about the soliciting contact angle?): W5GAD, W5YM, KC3M, N2WB, 

This is totally legit.  The "soliciting contact angle" applies to
*non-amateur* means, such as phone calls.  

>* No contest entry made (I guess they were just in it for the fun): 
>Everyone else

Nothing wrong with this --- if you do not submit a log for credit you 
can do anything you want.  Few years back there was even a multi-multi
unlimited on SS (K5LZO is I remember right).
