Neither ARRL or CQ are the rule-makers for all contests. I know of at 
least one state QSO party that considers the driver of a mobile entry an 
operator. For mobile operation, I consider this entirely fair to 
differentiate this from one person in a mobile who both drives and 
operates. Certainly operating and logging while also driving is quite 
challenging; the alternative is for the single person to drive between 
setups, park, and operate, in both cases with self-contained antennas 
and power capable of operation in motion.
