But isn't that exactly the point? I don't believe you can
properly distinguish this case from (certain special) false
5040s of triples. I fundamentally don't see how you can
produce a rule that allows 'nicely' fragmented extents of
minor interspersed through a 3600 of triples, while
disallowing an 'obviously' false 5040 of triples that happen
to be describable as a 3600 of triples with two
'unnaturally' fragmented extents of minor interspersed
through out it. That difference is a value judgement and
has no place in our new decisions.
