I agree that the difference between these two cases is minimal and
the penalty for both should probably be the same.  I have had 
discussions with some of the ARRL people, and I believe they are
considering a smaller - uniform - penalty for both types of errors.

There should be the same non-incentive for guessing at a check that
there should be for a callsign.

I don't think the above are errors  in the true sence , however I think
most of us on occasion turn things around, dislexia I guess.

Maybe the cure to the problem would be to HAND write the log and let the
TYPO's be the error of the guy who tries to read my hand writing.
