It is a  shame that the multiplier status of PJ2/4 and PJ5/6/7 are
likely to be in a  state of flux throughout the entire fall and
winter contest season.   It is also a shame that there are groups
spending big bucks to activate  countries on "independence day"
when those contact may not count for  anything other than PJ2/4
or PJ5/6/7 if ARRL follow their published  rules.
To invoke another basic principal, WFWL. Work 'em first, worry  later.
As one who has had two trips to PJ2T (though no more likely soon), I can  
assure you that the people who go to any of these places will have a good 
time  even if their official DXCC new country status does not happen until  
later.  This is not central Africa or Heard Island.
