Where are the sponsors?
The idea of a sponsor putting a clause in the agreement could be a huge disincentive to cheat. I don't know if the details should specify "if a title is removed due to you being found in ethical violation" or something less specific... but wouldn't that make a ...

If a normal bridge result ...
