The mults in NAQP are US states, Canadian provinces and north American countries. 

DC is not a state. 

The rules do mention DC and say that it counts as MD for this contest.

That's a very weak argument in that having someone show up from DC would have no more effect on any record than having someone show up from Greenland or any Caribbean or Central American country.  (Yet we'd all be saying "Great to see some DX activity!"}
