Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Re your fourth paragraph (prohibited misconduct), you realize you'd have to prove that allegation in court. The verdict of some association's disciplinary panel may well have no or limited relevance to such proof.
ATB - Undoubled contract
This should be a multiple choice poll, but I'd probably still abstain without any explanation of whether they are systemically required to conceal 5-card majors.
