There are two different situations in passing mults:
Case 1:  Big Gun is CQing,  Rare One answers his CQ, Big Gun  works him and 
asks Rare One  to QSY, Rare One says OK and QSYs.   This is a very normal, 
acceptable situation.
Case 2: Rare One is CQing,  running a good pileup. Big Gun calls in,  
breaks pileup, works Rare One, then asks Rare One to QSY to another band. IMHO  
very rude.
I hope in this case Rare One tells Big Gun  "Later In Day".  The  common CW 
abbreviation for that is "LID".

(Actually there's also a third situation where one Rare One works another  
Rare One asks for a QSY. That's not a problem).
