Just to report that this scoring method is not uncommon: there is a 
minor VHF Contest in Italy called "Lombardia Contest" (roules only in 
italian here: http://www.arilissone.org/regolamento.html).

Here the scoring is the following: each QSO with a station in your same 
square counts as 1 point. If he is in one of the 8 adjacent squares it 
counts as 2 points, and so on.

They also provide a software to manage the contest (SO far from wt) 
where this scoring method is implemented. I think it's based on a vector 
comparation and "tresholdings" between the two gridsquares.
