David, if you would read paragraphs 3 and 4  of my last piece of drivel,
you may find I have covered the points you raise.

"There are two issues here - one is acoustic power, and whatever the
tower acoustics under-weight trebles will always sound weak. There is
also the matter of timing. If the trebles are too small and light they
will turn too fast with respect to the tenors and consequently be very
difficult to strike. THe more bells there are in the ring, the more
these issues become important and the heavier the trebles will become
relative to a 'normal' bell of their note.
