Just one comment -  I suspect that a lot of those typos and mis-copies 
would be avoided if spots were being generated based on what people 
actually entered in their logs - on the theory that people are less 
careful if they are spotting manually after a QSO, and believe that a 
typo in a spot "does no harm."
