Yes, this should not be done as per the rules. Am not quite sure how in UK, one with Tier2 general work visa can accept a contract job n look for sponsor again. In your case, if your sponsor does not offer any job, then only you can switch

That is not entirely true. If you can find better things to do and some other place can offer you role+sponsorship.. you can switch. Though you may need to go back to your country in order to the the stamping etc done.

Well, if that is the case, most IT contracted-out staffing employments carried out by people on WP visa are also illegal. aren't they?

As long as the workpermit sponsorship is valid and the applicant visa/immigration is within the rules and approved, then employment contract term as secondment to another company(client) is allright, that is my understanding.
