I know it is reassuring to our modern minds to have everything codified 
and written down, but one of the things I look for in a fighter is the 
ability to adapt to changing conditions without being disconcerted or 
going into a huff over it.

I also feel that much of the upset I have seen over "non standard" 
formats was actually a fighter's reaction when he thought his chances of 
winning were reduced.  I believe these folks need to get their priorities 

So my advice is, if you go to a tournament, be prepared to be flexable 
and play the way the nice people putting it on tell you to play.

If you host a tournamnet run it the way you want it to run.  If you want 
to research how to run a tournamnet check period sources first. And be 
sure to give the fighters plenty of information on how you are running
