Well, you can't say that the rule is useless if you don't know if the 
non-presence of the problem is because of the rule or not :)

But clearly this rule won't prevent a coalition of companies with the same 
interest to have a dominant position, and this would be far less visible 
then having multiple representants from the same organisation (as you 
pointed out).
