I wish contesters would send a realistic signal report or none at all and exchange another bit of information such as a gridsquare.
Gridsquare / Peak SNR should be more useful.

True, but even this is of arguably little use given the wide variation in
transmitting equipment/antennas. Often, operators don't even really
accurately describe their equipment; I lost count of how many hams
describe their J-Poles as 3/4-wave antennas (it's an end-fed 1/2-wave
with shorted 1/4-wave matching stub).
