[r-t] What's the meaning of a method havingaparticularfalsecoursehead

But the grouping of the False courseheads refers to INTERNAL falseness. Group A is being used out of context if it is being used to define EXTERNAL falseness.

I don't suggest applying a caveat - only that if group A is going to be used, that it is used in the correct context. If people consider defining the external false course head important and useful, could they perhaps think of a different way of labelling it so that it won't be confused with internal falseness?

But consistency is surely the most important thing
with a definition. I think defining group A falseness
in the same way as all the other FCH groups is a good
thing. Adding an extra caveat: "but if it's group A
then everything's completely different" only confuses
the issue. Besides which, methods which are false in
the plain course are a little bit naughty, according
to the CC.
