... and I wouldn't have expected any other way. There is great scope for
error over the years for x-x-0 to be swapped to cwt and vice versa. I'm
sure someone could do the stats, but it would be interesting to see from
Dove, from the tenors with exact weights, what percentage are x-x-1, what
percentage are x-x-2 etc etc. A rough guess at about 4000 tenors with exact
weights, that is probably enough to have a representative sample?
