[CQ-Contest] CQWW Multiplier Station

I've signed up with a serious multi-single CQWW CW effort from a fairly juicy 
DX location.  In thinking of ways to maximize our score, I have considered 
using the phone bands, possibly including the WARC bands, to find stations on 
SSB who will qsy to CW to work us for a contest qso.

Is this a violation of the contest rules or ethics?  Would the SSB operations 
be bound by a 10 minute rule, so long as the actual CW qsos conformed?

I'm talking about real CW qsos, not a "whistle into the mike"  or say 
"di-di-di-di-di dah-di"  kind.  I would consider qsying into the CW portions 
of a band a reasonable requirement.  But is the basic concept OK? If not, why
