     Call me an idiot, and keep in mind that I have never flown in a 
     competition before, but when I watched the WAC's last summer on ESPN, 
     the announcer would say something like "Roland is now doing a 
     crosswind correction maneuver". It was obviously perfectly clear to 
     all that a crosswind correction was taking place. This would lead me 
     to believe that it is not a downgradable maneuver, at least in 
     international competition.

It's not cheating, it's presenting the illusion of a perfectly flown 
How to do it, requires cooperation from the winds and a knowledgable 
coach/critiquer on the ground to tell you how much you can get away with and 
where in each figure you can do it without getting down graded.
