Dave: just because KCBS had never officially described what constitutes a Whole Shoulder I still don't think anyone could justify using an approx. 4lb. boneless roast and claiming it as a whole shoulder, that just about universally is described as containing a Butt and a Picnic cut. KCBS's own rules list 3 legal cuts, Whole Shoulder, Butt, and Picnic. When someone orders a pork Collar from Snake River Farms the package doesn't say Whole shoulder, butt or picnic. Just because it was attached doesn't make it legal. The key words being "was attached." On its own the collar has never been legal under current KCBS rules. If it was left attached to a whole shoulder, I think someone would make a better case of it being legal under KCBS. But, that is not at issue, the question are these little 4 lb boneless roast, that even if they were 5lbs or more still can't be classified as a whole shoulder.
The analogy that comes to mind is that of rib tips. If you cook a whole spare rib with the breast plate (rib tip) attached you may turn it in as a legal KCBS spare rib. However, if the processing plant removes the breast plate to make a spare rib into a St Louis cut and you now have rib tips that can be sold seperately. Yet, rib tips on there own are not legal in KCBS competition.
