The trouble with a hunt bell is that it disrupts the music.  Think of
Bob -- you can't get much off the front because the treble is always in
way.  Your method might well be fun to ring, but the 4 and 6 (not
musical bells on 12) are always hanging around the front, so I don't
there'll be much in the way of music there.  And as the 4 and 6 never
get to
the back, there's no opportunity for little bell music at the back

Is it possible to have multiple hunts in a treble dodging method, and
make it musical?
