In the WAE DC rules is still clearly printed:
***According to IARU Region I regulations, operation is not allowed in the following contest-free windows:
New!CW : 3560-3800; 7025-7200; 14060-14350 kHz***
Is there any space for a human interpretation according 40m operation? I think not. And if we accept this as a recommendation only - contest commettee will have a right to count it as a violation of the rules.
Violation of the rules of the contest or unsportsmanlike conduct will be deemed sufficient cause for disqualification. The decisions of the contest-committee are final.***
That is the situation today. And I undestand taht DARC is inbetween of the two fires - IARU regulations from one side and Amateur Society from the other. Guys, sorry for that...

As others have noticed, indeed common sense would dictate to simply
stick to the IARU bandplan and change the wording of the rules
accordingly. Make it a recommendation not a restriction.
7000kHz-7025kHz is "contest preferred". Period.
