[CQ-Contest] You gotta let me know, should M/M Distributed stay or go.

Perhaps it's worth another try at offering a solution....this battle has 
become the 100 Years War.

Instead of "Multi" classifications, consider treating entries involving 
more than one operator as a "Team".

In a Team entrant, each operator signs his or her own callsign for all 
Qs.   The Team score is computed by adding up all the scores of the 
members of the Team.   Basically use the same rules as before, but 
require each operator to use his or her personal callsign as a member of 
the Team.

This would likely make more Qs available to other contesters.   More 
callsigns on the air.   It would also probably be more fun and 
challenging for the Team operators.   Each of them gets to collect their 
own mults et al, and not be as likely to experience endless CQing as the 
contest progresses and the Team "station" has been worked by most everybody.

So M/M Distributed would simply be a Distributed Team entrant.   Teams 
could use their creativity to organize and use Teamwork.   Perhaps they 
coordinate to help other members score.  And there would be more 
callsigns available for others to work.
