I specifically didn't mention portability, because while I am pretty sure
that all portable rings would be accepted as mini rings, the converse isn't
true - many are permanently installed in buildings.  It might be feasible
to 'detach and carry' some of the lighter ones elsewhere, but it certainly
wouldn't be for the heavier ones.
