[CQ-Contest] Technology against cheating?

One idea to deal with "entry category shopping": have the contest sponsor automatically enter each submitted log in every category it was eligible for (based on number of operators, allowable power, assisted/non-assisted, etc). So for example SOAB unassisted entries would automatically compete as well in SOAB(A) and single band categories. A low-power station could place in the high-power categories, etc. With this kind of scoring one person/callsign could win in more than one category.

In other words, just choose whatever "limiting" parameters describe your operation/station in that contest, and submit a log. No need to even choose a category.
