[CQ-Contest] Defining CQ's Operating Time

Since this is a CQ-sponsored list, I would like to ask
a CQWW question.  Based on the document found at this
URL: http://www.cqww.com/WW%20Rules%202006.pdf

In Section VIII, there is a reference to requiring
single operator stations to operate for 12 hours.

Based on a recent posting to this list where a station
can park on 10-meters and "wait for the band to open",
I wonder...

How is the term "operate" defined and "operating time"
calculated for the purposes of meeting this rule?
