I think that the argument here is that there is no work above the treble 
in section H, and repeating it would therefore introduce work (a dodge) 
that wasn't in the parent. For instance, Cromer Alliance Minor has plain 
hunting above the treble - should not this characteristic be retained in 
an extension?
