Hey Bunny, I voted no, but I can see the other side of the coin.
One example for judges expecting higher standards would be the American Royal's Invitational contest. Over the years, I have spoken to many a judge immediately after the contest. A lot, not a majority, but a lot of judges have told me that they had expected the entries to be better. These judges making the comment also gave the same reason for their disappointment. They said since this was an invitational contest, they thought they would be sampling the best of the best.
Disclaimer: I am not slamming the quality of the judging at this contest. Who knows, maybe I will get to cook in it someday.........
