Your proposal, as K8MR stated, is stupid.

You *really* don't get it, do you?
Legitimate, as in: an activity which is within the spirit
of the rules. The reason your example of QSOs between a
multi-op and its operators isn't legitimate is because that
would most likely be done simply to manufacture contacts
for the multi - "captive" QSOs, as it were.
For someone who is out to have some fun and give out some
casual contacts, the scenarios Jim and I mentioned are not
at all at odds with the spirit of fair competition.
