I do not know about frequency boundaries for all countries.
In Finland 7040 is not stated by law.

In this case the question is about basic paper work and agreements.
It is a fundamental question if the basic paper work is in order or not.

Squeezing the screw:
There are contests that deny using some frequency segments but in real
life allow using the denied-by-the-rules frequencies.
It gives huge advantage for the stations misbehaving as there is very
little QRM by competitors and they get the trophies alright.

Squeezing more:
There are layers beyond even this.
Being a legitimate contact means by many countries' written regulation
that each stations' calls must be presented at the beginning and at the
end of a contact.

I am sure we can get even stricter than this level if we want to.

Well, then how, for instance, about a bunch of Europeans answering 
split-CQ's of the U.S. stations below 7040?
A lot of them are not allowed to run SSB below that frequency.
Should the CQ WW committee DQ them if someone raises complaint?

Just curious, how far should that go.

I think it just means operations must be legitimate, nothing more.
