So now we play the player not the game - Regardless of his alleged indiscretions...did they occur during the contest?

Were all of the top 5 asked? Were the next of the top ten asked? If he is dropped by not having a recording how many others have one?

The rule allows the committee to selectively seek out those they have a beef with -

You can't look at the MM3AWD entry in a vacuum. His bootlegging of
MM0LID was happening in the recent past, not the distant past. It ended
only days before CQWW SSB. In addition, he entered in the QRP category,
which is easily abused by unscrupulous operators. A recording would be
very helpful to ascertain his approximate power level. For example, if
he is successfully working "big gun" stations who are not strong at his
QTH, that would make his use of QRP quite questionable.
