Nothing has been said which persuades me that it is "bad" for the operator 
to be remote from the station, whether the station is across town, across 
the state, across the continent, or across an ocean from the operator.

I am not a rich man.  Some day I may be reduced to a home without space for 
antennas to contest.  Remote operation may be my only way to enjoy ham 
radio.  Why do you care where the radio is located, so long as the contest 
entry reflects that location and the pertinent rules of the regulatory 
body(ies) are observed.

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 
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.
