Technically you have not violated the rules.  What I do in such a 
case is log W4/DX1DX so the score is properly calculated.  Enter a 
note that says something like "call sent DX1DX".  After all the POST 
stuff is done, I just change the call to DX1DX.  Simple...it goes 
lots faster than the description.

The rules probably do require that, but the law doesn't.  If they're 
casual participants, not sending in logs, penalizing them means 
squat.  The bottom line is that you don't want your score reduced, so 
you take care of it on your end.
