is this a type of situation in which a numbering system (similar to london 
and superlative royal) might be put into use? if so, does the methods 
committee have any say on who gets what number ie. are they similarly used 
in date order? i heard of a peal attempt at maidstone a few years back 
(which wasn't successful, unfortunately) of london no.5 surprise royal, but 
i'm not sure what the method was or how (if?) it beared any relation to 
london major.

sorry to get back onto the much maligned subject of extension, but i think 
we should be told.
