If you enter as Multi-Single, I hope you followed the ten minute on a  band 
rule.  And that's ten minutes on the same mode as well as same  band.
Off hand, I believe the ARRL contests where packet gets classed into  
Multi-Single are single band contests where a 10 minute rule does not  exist.
There really is a big no-man's land in IARU for packet users.

It's  sort of funny the way the rule is worded - as if using spotting 
assistance  is shameful.  Several ARRL contests don't have a single-op 
assisted  category, but they classify single op + packet as multi-single, 
just as  IARU does, but without the pejorative tone.  I'm entering as
