I'm not sure that *does* preserve a particularly worthwhile symmetry.
Having one lead methods seems "more different" to me than in some
cases not being able to have two different kinds of lead end change.
Of course, that may just be because I've become so used to the latter,
but I don't think so.

Note, too, that it would probably be rare to ring a plain lead of any
method with a one lead course. The only way you could, I think, would
be to include it in a multi-extent block. Far more common, I think,
would be ringing lots of bobbed leads of it. In which case, why not
view the B-block as the basic method, albeit a differential hunter
thingie or whatever its classification du jour is?
