I think it should be an overlay to the "normal" M/S.

Isn't this what's already in "normal" M/S? Of course depending on 
contest their might be additional limitations in "normal" M/S like 
number of band changes which your definition doesn't have ... so making 
it even more like "classic" M/2 than M/S.

But from what I understand what people want for "Classic M/S" is just 
one radio. Period. No loopholes then concerning multiplier radio (or 
several therof as the case today), just one single radio allowed. 
Nothing else. That's it.

I think so, too. We are just a small group of 2-3 contesters locally and 
with "Classic M/S" I could really imagine to do an multi OP. With the 
current M/x categories we could never be competetive so rather run 2 (or 
sometimes 3) single OP single band entries instead (which is fun, too).
