The WRTC rules include post-contest (limited time) for note/log-reconciling 
prior to submission. If other contest organizers follow this example, than 
they should also find the way of ensuring that the log has not indeed been 
edited beyond this time and limit the time, at least for top score 
contenders....RRDXC rules are coming close to that.
