This is a moot point. In the VHF contests rovers are only allowed to  
operate from one grid at a time. So if a rover is straddling grids, he  
must chose one or the other to send as an exchange and move a  
reasonable distance, I think 100 Meters, before the rover can operate  
in another grid.

Rover operation in contests is more restrictive than other times, not  
less. I rove and I know. - Duffey
