So now all the UAs who have operated elsewhere in the past with their 
USA calls might be legal now?

Countries don't go around making agreements that apply to people that 
aren't theirs.

CEPT is perfect for this sort of abuse: no application to make, unless 
is someplace like P5 or you upset the locals, you probably can come & go 
without any worries.

Since this sort of thing isn't checked in radiosport, once your score is 
published, you're laughing - DXers might find your cards rejected for 
DXCC later, but your score will likely still stand.
