Guess I like "pushing the definition", then.
Reason being that a 10cl sample permits three 'solid' drams worth of evaluation... Quite important when one is really trying to come to terms with a whisky and also experimenting with how well it reacts to the addition of water (not that I normally add water when simply 'enjoying' a pour, but it can help in assessing more nuanced characteristics - especially in the nose).
With 10cl at hand, one is easily able to 'revisit' a whisky in its undiluted state after having previously 'opened it up' with water.

For swapping, 5-6 cl is better. 10 Cl is too much, especially when the content is not good.
What if the content is better? If you send 10cl you should receive 10cl in return. I think that the bigger the sample the better. This way the whisky can be sampled more than once or at least more thoroughly, especially for writing tasting notes.
