Actually, the contest judges are a bit smarter than the rules. The log 
checking software recognises when your exchange is "unstable" in this 

So long as your log reflects what you actually sent, everything is fine.

However, as to your category. So long as you aren't a school club:

1) if you have more than one operator, you're multi-op.
2) if you used packet or any other form of assistance, you're unlimited.
3) if you used more than 150 watts for any contact in the contest period, 
you're high power.
4) if you used more than 5 watts for any contact in the contest period, 
you're low power.
5) otherwise, you're QRP.

See? Simple.
