ARRL contest rules changes are the perview of the ARRL Membership Services 
Committee (MSC.)  The MSC may or may not, at its discretion, ask the 
Contest Advisor Committee (CAC) for its opinion.

Who is on the ARRL Membership Services Committee in December, 2003?  I have 
no idea.  The ARRLWeb seems to have been designed specifically to hide this 
information from its members.  I can tell you from looking at a past
report (http://www.arrl.org/announce/reports-0307/msc.html) that in August, 
2003 the MSC was:

Day, Coy, N5OK (Chair)
Bodson, Dennis, W4PWF
Craigie, Kay, N3KN
Edgar, Bill, N3LLR
Frenaye, Tom, K1KI
Vallio, Bob, W6RGG
Weaver, Jim, K8JE
Mills, Wayne, N7NG, (Staff Liaison)
