Taking into consideration what you have said about working to ge a fair planet distribution, I would tend to disagree with Iztok. If the luck of the (planet-) draw is eliminated, I would regard a 'runaway monster' not as spoiling the game for me, but rather as proof that the player concerned is better than I am.
Those monsters which do not require overly much skill to design and play (JoaT without NAS; CA; -f HE) are banned. If somebody builds a monster that manages to outstrip the other seven players, he has probably spent a lot of thought and time on race design, on testbedding and on micromanagement during the game. Why rob him of the fruit of his labours by alerting the rest of the universe to his status?
Finally: If the other players do not find out that someone is running away with the game, this would seem to indicate a serious deficiency in scouting efforts. (Though of course the monster may have already gained a decisive advantage by the time one meets him. In that case, I would again say that he has played a good game.)

Cheers, Matt
