Each mission description has a "Specific physical requirement, visible at
the end of the match" which is what scoring is based on.  Scoring for the
Transport mission is only based on the condition of the field at the end of
the match.

A couple of missions also have a "Method Constraint" which might disqualify
scoring for that particular mission during the match, but the ending
condition is important for all.

Temporary results that are changed before the end of the match  (like the
Yellow Bin being supported by the Truck for a while, before getting dumped
later) are not relevant for scoring.
