Common sense tells us that Formula One race cars should not be allowed to
enter the  local stock car race. Just like common sense tells us that
multi-single stations should not be entered in to the same category as
single-op. SO2R should be a category of its own UNTIL it becomes main
stream. For example, packet is almost mainstream - I could live with
dropping the assisted category but SO2R is far from mainstream and I expect
it will remain out of the mainstream for some time to come.

Let me see high power is a 'trick of the trade' -- it has its own category.
Packet is a 'trick of the trade' --  it has its own category for single ops.
Multiple operators is a 'trick of the trade' -- its has two categories.
There seems to be something missing from the logic of the above reasoning.
