OK...I'm ready to get hammered on this. Go for it.
Just curious - What you mean by additional constraints ?
Remember - the contest organizer chooses to be KCBS sanctioned, it's not a requirement. If an organizer wants a local feel & local teams only, they don't need to get KCBS support which aside from the rules/scoring also makes the contest known to a broader pool of teams outside the local area.
