i believe there is value to having the two single-op categories.  the exact reason as stated is enough justification.  i can not commit 36 hours to a contest, esp. when the harmonic wants me to read him a story or go outside and play.  family first.  so if i operated for a few hours here and there, spotting would allow me to maximize those few hours and still log a respectible score.  

when i do have the time to commit to a full contest effort, i would prefer to not go up against those stations using packet.  armchair contesting vs. hardcore contesting efforts - each as valid as the other, but not if competing against each other.
