GPS Field Code Strips for Qualifying Events - Follow Up

I would like to request a reconsideration to the response to the referenced question. Specifically, the option to both include and use the GPS Field Code Strip in the challenge. While I understand you program for this at your own risk, it seems an event host would gain an planned advantage by ensuring they have the strips in place and their team has programmed to utilize the strip. It seems, to remain completely fair, I would proffer there should be either; A requirement to include the strips in the challenge OR the prohibition to use them should they be present.

I do not propose an event host be FORCED to remove the strips. Merely create uniform field and operationg environment expectation for all teams at all events.
