[CQ-Contest] Rule Enforcement - why not power cheating?

I hate to change the subject, but why not put the fear of being caught 
to work on curbing power cheating?  Just like a few speeding tickets on 
a road can deter speeding to some degree, spotchecks that catch a few 
major cheaters each year in a major contest could go a long way.

I'm not talking about CQ's ill-fated notion of having on-site monitors - 
just that the contest committees could deputize a few respected and 
well-trusted observers to drop in on suspected violators during contests 
to verify that they are at least approximately complying with the 
rules.  Certainly anyoneusing KW amps as drivers, as recently reported, 
would be easy to catch this way.
