Regarding the ARRL Phone Sweepstakes, I enjoy this one as it's one you really need to work at working all sections besides trying to make as many Q's as possible.  However, after awhile, unless you're a big gun, and are able hold a frequency for a duration of time, you tend to run up against dupes.  I would like to see the contest modified to allow working the same station on multiple bands as is allowed in so many other contests.

Ah, vive la difference.  If you change the format from
'work them once' to 'work them once per band' the
number of stations with a legitimate shot at the
top 10 drops from 50 to about 10.  The 'work them
once' format forces you to work EVERYONE, even the
weak guys on SSB and the slow CW ops.  Once per band
just means the loudest 5% of contesters will dominate
SS, just like they do for every contest.
