What I meant is Stickerless cubes are different than the standard Black, White, Blue, etc. cubes. Stickerless are a combination of colors.
I still don't understand what you're saying.

With regard to your original suggestion: splitting the 3x3x3 event over multiple kinds of 3x3x3 is very unlikely to happen. But are you aware that stickerless cubes are already permitted?

Not sure if it's the right place to ask, but anyway,
Let's say I start inspection and suspect it's a duplicate scramble, but I'm not 100% sure. Should I raise this to the judge immediately, or finish the solve first?

I would finish the solve and ask after. If you ask immediately and it is a duplicate, you get an extra attempt/the correct scramble. If you ask immediately and it isnt a duplicate, inspection runs out, and it is a DNF (I think). if you ask after the solve, its win win. Either the solve doesnt count and you get the real scramble or it counts.

If you solve the cube, what evidence do we have that it is a repeated scramble? (Assuming no video was taken)

I'd suggest bringing it up in inspection.

oh yeah, thats true. that didnt occur to me, thanks!

edit: so if it turns out that it isnt a repeated scramble, the competitor is given an extra scramble right? If yes, how hard would it be for someone to cheat and claim they think they have a repeat scramble to avoid a difficult scramble?

What I do: vocalize in inspection that I think it might be a duplicate. Continue with the solve. Stop the solve if/when I'm convinced. Bring it up with judges.
