I would think the rich guy presently has the advantage of being able to  
afford to rent, physically travel to, and physically occupy a remote  contest 
location. (Plus perhaps having the additional leisure time involved in  the 
Renting a station with an internet connection, possibly using a only a  
small portion of a property, should be a lot cheaper.
The only advantage conferred by remote operations might go to citizens of  
countries with a far flung empire with lots of rare DXCC counties that are 
still  considered part of the mother country, which might make for less of a 
regulatory  challenge. France and the USA are the only such countries that 
come to  mind. (Plus a number of minor examples with one or two close by DXCC 
 countries like VU, VK, HC, HK, etc.)

Although the rich big boys would not like this rule, there should be a rule 
 that says:
“The remote operator must be the same DXCC county as the operating  
location of the transmitters and receivers.” 

Short and sweet. Not  ambiguous as to both elements, where Joe is and where 
the RF is transmitted and  received.

This will prevent Joe Blow from “renting”  or using a  station in a 
favourable location without having to have gone through the grief,  travel time, 
and money that would be expended otherwise.
Radio Sport should  not be based on how much money or how clever someone 
can be to do less then the  other person in order to compete.

One person spend the time and energy to go to P4 and operates, a second  
person is remote into a station on P4.
