Perhaps another way of looking at it is that the CQ WW committee,
after writing the rule that seems fairly clear to at least some of us,
have received entries from multi-singles that will clearly show in log
that two simultaneous transmitters were in operation & those
entries show up in the results as multi-singles.

Like SO2R for single-ops, during my time MO2R with the
multiplier-only restriction for the second station has been possible
for multi-singles.  Perhaps the name of the category is being
taken too literally, or are we going to have a CQ-WW-M/S-is-unfair
thread? ;^)
