Hi Jeff,

Here in IARU Region 1 we agreed a definition of a valid QSO  sometime back for VHF and above.

They are shown in this extract   http://www.southgatearc.org/news/may2007/qso_definition.htm

I suspect that such definitions have probably not yet been elaborated in the other two IARU Regions

Callsign and grid square is all that is needed, plus the time, (UTC).  
Signal report on any birds isn't necessary.

BTW, signal reports aren't needed for HF QSO under WAS or DXCC.
