... only if you have lead-head changes as well

which, let's face it, is fair enough. you could ring 1 grid of cambridge 
before changing to a different grid at the half-lead, claiming it as a 
random asymmetric method with a completely different string of notation for 
your second, unrung, half of the lead. but that just wouldn't be cricket.

I've rung at least one peal finishing with 2 rows of Cambridge S to get a 
required length. AFAIK it hasn't been chucked out.

and with the plain bob -> cambridge snap case, C1 doesn't appear to apply.
