Yes Bob, there can be such an approach. But based on the fact that it is a 
contest in accuracy of delivering information from A to B would it not be 
more logical to blame both? Thre are two parties in the QSO. It is somthing 
like a small temporary team. If the team fails to exchange information the 
entire team should be penalised. Isn't it fare?
On the other hand if you allow SN +/- 1 then why not go a step further and 
allow call sign +/- one letter?
