Indeed. Most informative isn't it?
I'm all for open adjudication. At least then it ends the ridiculous notion that the adjudicators don't know who's on stage. At least if they KNOW which band it is, they can ignore it and be objective, rather than sitting there trying to work it out.
They can also look for re-written parts being played by other instruments, and all the other tricks that all bands seem to use now and again. I'd rather go on, play my own part, and know everyone else will be doing the same.
There'll also be no excuse for 'conflicts of interest' either.
