I agree absolutely!  I am more than a little convinced that the
salvation of the "inventive" side of amateur radio ("advancing
the state of the radio art" and all that stuff) will be the
competitive environment of Radiosport ("contesting" is a dirty
word some places).  The contesting community owes it to themselves
to nuture and encourage "thinking outside the envelope".
