To which I would add -- We ALREADY HAVE a domestic contest which allows 
Qs and mults once per bad. It is called the North American QSO Party 
(NAQP), and runs every January and August for both CW and Phone, and in 
July for RTTY.

Yes, leave SS alone. If you want a contest that's more of a QSO-fest, 
NAQP fits the bill nicely.
