I enter the following tidbit into the transcript of this society,
apropos to the current discussion:

RMS at AI (Richard Stallman) has suggested the following paradigm
for cubing tournaments:

(Assuming physically standard cubes are used) The two participants
acquire (or create) solved cubes. Each one randomizes it his/her
favorite way, and hands it to the other to solve. The resources
expended by the solver (either qtw or real-time) are added to his/her
resource expenditure in solving the other's cube. Minimum resource
expenditure wins.
