My understanding is that the "Classic" overlay was intended as "a Boy and 
his Radio" class.  Why would you want to screw with that?

I would just add one point.  I've been told that the 1 radio no spotting
caveats were added because some folks on the CQ Committee were concerned
that non-assisted hot-shots would drop down to the 24-hour overlay
unless these things were outlawed.  I frankly doubt this, particularly
with respect to the assisted/non-assisted angle.  However, instead of
sitting on the sidelines, it is important that supporters of the 24-hour
category enter it this year, so that we can credibly make the argument
for loosening that restriction next time.
