I'd go along with that, but with three unambiguous conditions.

1.  The tools should not replace amateur-band RF in any part of
     the signal path between the operators concerned - subject
     only to the usual 500 metre radius circle / own property
     limits for contesting,

2.  The tools should not involve any use, during the contest,
     of non-amateur-radio communications modes or technologies,
     with the potential for, or for the purpose of, finding or
     facilatating contest QSOs.

3.  In CW contests, CW decoders (including Skimmer, with any
     decoding facility enabled) should not be used.  Why?
     Because such use reduces CW to the status of just another
     data mode.
