Interruption is part of a ton of different speaking contexts. Any of you who go to law school, if you ever appear before an appellate panel, including the US Supreme Court, expect to be interrupted every few minutes. Congress operates by parliamentary procedure, as do most state legislatures and city councils, meaning other members can ask the speaker to yield to a question. Educators and presenters in business settings very often take questions mid-presentation. A speaking league that has no events where interruption is allowed is, frankly, artificial and stunted.

+1

And that has no events where you can prepare and speak from an outline, but instead requires "word for word" scripts that people memorize, is equally artificial on the individual events level.

But people do it anyway and get away with it. :P
