Is there a critical size or weight where small bells rung by rope and 
wheel invariably cease to handle like most "conventional" tower bells?

If so, could that be of assistance in a re-categorization?  (Not that 
I am advocating this for official purposes, you understand!)

In any event, I suppose there is always going to be a "grey area" 
that would make any ruling for public record-keeping purposes 
controversial and unpopular with some people.
