[CQ-Contest] New CQ WW DX Rule Bans Post-Contest Log Changes

This brings up a few interesting points.

In the June VHF contest this year I worked a bunch of stations that 
identified on CW as "K9ABC/R" or "K9ABC Rover" on SSB.  How are you 
supposed to log this as sent?

If you log K9ABC/R it logs as European Russia.

After the contest, when I imported calls like K9ABC/R into my general 
logging program that I use to keep track of DXCC/Grids, etc...all of 
these had to be fixed by hand.

In QSO parties, mobile stations usually identify as K9ABC/MKE for 
"Milwaukee County" but some don't use the county identifier.  This 
changes as they move from county to county.  How do you log this?

I've also heard in CQWW many times where stations will identify in 
different ways during the same contest, like EA8/K9ABC and 10 minutes 
later K9ABC/EA8.  Obviously when the log is submitted am I going to get 
dinged for all of the QSO's which were sent improperly?

In Field Day this year I worked several stations that could NOT send 
their callsign the same way twice.
