This certainly does not cover everything. Where it helps is, automatically checks the Entries at the point of submitting, indicating possible errors to the entrants way before their entry is accepted in the Challenge. These that pass the submission process checking can be said to conform at least in those (checkable) aspects. The Hosts can then check if the Entries are in-line with the Challenge theme and other rules.

The manually entered values (in pixels) define the largest allowed image size, but images can actually be smaller than that, just as it is defined now. The diff is, the Host does not have to manually check these values any longer. The values will be mentioned in the Rules, but won't be free to ignore or forget.

There are other urgently needed changes, such as removal of anonymization code, so that Hosts can control the voters' behavior... and several other things that have all been discussed before.

Yeah, things that can be checked (and controlled) automatically should be part of the submission phase for each entrant. Strictly speaking of the creation screen, as we are, this is a good start but as you note, some other tools should be put in place for "behind-the-scenes" control by the hosts.
