The answer to your question ... for the umpteenth time ... is that a 
mode SIMILAR to FT8 or FT4 but with a different interface and some 
different parameters could and should be an excellent contesting mode if 
it was done properly by somebody who was smart enough and cared enough 
to do it.  That you and the majority of hams seem to think as you do is 
why it isn't likely to ever happen, but that doesn't make it a complete 
shame that it won't.
