Isn't going to go away?  How about eliminating all forms of packet from
contesting entirely?  

I've never understood what packet adds to the contest experience.  I
used packet once or twice back in the nineties and have never used it
since.  Wouldn't it be better (more fun) to focus on turning the big
knob in the middle of the radio?  Heck, if you just want a bigger score,
let's give two points per Q instead of one!  :-)
