If I recall correctly, it wasn't all that long ago that the WPX contest 
required the "portable" identifier, which was logical since it in 
essence modifies your call sign, which provides the multiplier credit in 
that contest.

I'm not sure whether that requirement is still in place or not. WPX 
might have been the last holdout :-)
