The multi-unlimited rules state that "the six contest bands may be activated
simultaneously".  It is not mandatory that they be on all six bands
simultaneously and I doubt any station is. Perhaps they exceeded the 8 band
changes per hour requirement of M2. Regardless, I see no violation of the
rules or reason for an explanation.

If you do a spot check on CR3L on the DX Summit you will see they were never

spotted on more than two bands at a time during the whole contest weekend.
they were really Mult-Multi wouldn't you think they would've been spotted
Plus they had only 7 operators, which is about what they've had in past
when running M2X.

Now category switching isn't illegal in the rules but don't you think that 
integrity is on everyone's mind after what happened last year? Maybe it
be added to the rules just like having a bad or wide signal is.

Bad call CR3L team . Maybe you should provide an explanation like the one we

were all waiting for from UT5UGR last year. Maybe you had a good reason for 
doing this?
