[CQ-Contest] Assisted

I think the definition of the category should be really based only on a number of operators and number of transmitted signals at a time. 
Single OP or Multi Op (different numbers of TX's). That's it.
If a single Op can do what a bunch of people together can't - why should he be handicapped?
If he can utilize all of the technology and all by himself (without physical help of other people) - why should we call him assisted? Only because a bunch of "ordinary" people can't do the same?

Of someone is using OCF dipole instead of monoband Yagi, or if someone doesn't have Internet in the shack - that's his own choice. Everyone else doesn't have to "downgrade" because of that.

Assisted is really not assisted - 2BSIQ Two Band Synchronised interleaved QSOs have left the assisted operator in its dust... 
It is really time to reconsider whether Assisted is truly an advantage anymore and deserving of its own category...
Assisted by my definition is the sourcing of callsign, band and frequency information from any source other than your radio system.

Is remembering a well-known callsign assisted?
