Why ?

IMO, during contests :
- split operation should be avoided. It is only warranted when the 
pileup/chaos gets uncontrolable.
- working 1up 'inside' the DX-window, is of course nogo at all times.
- listening outside the DX-window 'per default' would create more confusion 
than benefit (S&P stations will lose time figuring out which station the 
pileup is clg)

What am I missing, Eric ?
