Hi Yuri,
I just wanted to mention that multy band contest with distance based points 
already exists.
At least in RAEM everybody can work everybody for points. Imagine if US 
activity in this contest would increase to match EU activity level. The 
contest would have stopped to be boring for you.
ARRL from UA9 is terribly boring because of  very short or no propagation 
95% of contest time and there is nothing we can do about it because points 
are given only for NA.
There was one ARRL many years ago with different rules, when everybody could 
work everybody and we at UK9CAE got it won. This was the only memorable ARRL 
we managed to get plaque for.

73, Igor UA9CDC
