I agree.  If everyone is expected to respect a 1810-1825 DX window for the 
JA's, and 1825-1840 for other DX, that leaves only 1800-1810 for domestic 
CW.  But, I seem to recall, 1810 is supposed to be reserved as a QRP calling 
frequency, and 1800-1810 for "digital" modes.  There are plenty of wide open 
spaces above 1900, but lots o' luck getting any response to a CQ on CW in 
that portion of the band.
