My personal preference is not using any of these "crutches" for 
contesting. This puts me in the "active decoding" state while logging 
QSOs, where a mistake (bust) is fully attributable to my skill. It is 
too easy to fall into false sense of security of a "Check this and while 
you're at it, check that" database fever and not even pay attention to 
what the program puts into the RX field.

But that's just my style, I guess.  I love CW!
