So a Multi/Single can break the rules and have their contacts removed 
yet the other station gets to keep the contact even though the station 
they worked violated the rules?  So what is to stop the mult station 
from running and just marking the non mults as zero pointers?

This sounds like trouble waiting to happen especially with some folks 
who will stretch the rules to the max.

Explain to me how the mult station ends up working non mults?
