I don't see the problem here.

I mean, let's say
The logged QSO callsign was entered using a partial callsign database 
click, or
Maybe the logged callsign was dragged from an Internet post.

What the post-contest confirmation request would then be focused towards is:
Whether or not the Internet post was correct, or
Whether or not the software's partial check callsign database was correct.

The request for a post contest QSO confirmation would then
have very little to do with the operating ability of the man who sat at the 
radio at the QSO time in question, but rather,
more to do with checking the robotics of the station management.
