But zero-point QSOs do not give the running-station any incentive to
actually log the QSO.  If it is a multiplier for the calling station
but just another zero-point QSO for the runner and the runner
chooses not to log the QSO why is it good policy for the caller to be 
penalized and not the runner?

What incentive does the runner have to log zero-point QSOs?
