AGREED !! In the end, you still have to complete the QSO and the exchange via the radio link before you can count the Q.
Been trying to drive home that point for over 35 years of VHF-UHF contesting now..........

Why not eliminate all potential for cheating by
changing the rule to allow non-amateur means for skeds
in VHF contests? People at the contest branch have
better things to do than monitor Ping Jockey to catch
Joe Blow. Besides, what's the difference between using
the telephone before the contest and using the
telephone during the contest to arrange a sked if the
object is to complete a QSO via radio? None.
