Well, we could just not display the field if it contains RC, but that
might be a bit confusing for people entering results.

Sigh, this thread has prompted me to do something I didn't do for a
while - go and look at TCMSes :P One I'd never really looked at before
is Mozilla's , Moztrap , https://moztrap.mozilla.org/ . It seems fairly
nice. Their production deployment is rather slow, but someone's been
working on optimizing it lately
(http://www.peterbe.com/plog/optimizing-moztrap , and a lot of the other
recent commits - https://github.com/mozilla/moztrap/commits/master ) and
I doubt ours would have quite the combinatorial explosions that cause
slowness for Moz. Might be time to go evaluatin' again.
