Many years ago I worked WN6ZDF/P/KG6. If he was also /QRP, then how many
logging programs would cater for a 16 character callsign in the logging

But what about the maxim of logging (exactly) what you hear..?
I don't agree with it's use either but have assumed I'll lose points if the
software doesn't see a match between sent and logged call; I wouldn't expect
the software or adjudicators to be able or willing to make the distinction.
Why lose a point just to make a point?
/qrp simply indicates you are imposing operating limits on yourself; some of
the several US /calls I've logged include W1AA/CC (Marconi) and another /MD
for IMD. My logging software (ofcourse) called these wrongly for DXCC and I
had to manually intervene but I left the verbiage in since they seemed
integral at the time.
