To prohibit SO2R, they simply specify the maximum number of band changes 
per hour, or require a specific time between band changes. It works (at 
least, it keeps _me_ from doing SO2R on those contests).

I have two radios. One can operate (one of) 80, 20, or 10. The other can 
operate (one of) 40 or 15. During an all-band contest, I _must_ operate 
both of those radios, though at different times . This is _not_ SO2R. I 
think it would be pretty difficult to specify "exactly" what SO2R is, but 
the "band changes per hour" specification seems to do it well without ever 
counting radios.

Agreed. I didn't see anything that specified the minimum.
