If you are talking about a composition which contains a change of method at
every half lead and lead end, then I agree that you can only have one method
defined per distinct half-lead fragment. But I would define a fragment as a
sequence of place notation between calls (or changes of method), so if you
included lead length fragments of each method in a composition of half-lead
spliced, then I see nothing wrong with claiming that the composition
includes all of them.
