I sure hope that by "should therefore be kicked out" you only mean
that the claim of what they rang should be kicked out, and that it
should not be asserted that they didn't ring a peal. I've not thought
about it enough to have an opinion on how such a peal should be
recorded, but I'm confident that what they did ring was an impressive
performance, worthy of being recorded as a peal of something.
