[CQ-Contest] modest proposal ...up to 200w

I don't see the point of this at all.  What possible benefit is there 
for anyone ... even those who own 200 watt rigs ... to make this change??

 From a competitive standpoint, those who own 100 watt rigs (a 
population much greater than those who own 200 watts rigs) would be at a 
significant disadvantage.  3db is a considerable difference in average 
signal strength.

It seems to me that this "modest" proposal would create all sorts of 
problems without solving any.
