Well, I think even requiring whole leads is too restrictive. 
I can easily imagine wanting to switch stage at both the 
half-lead and the lead-end.

I think you're far, far too keen to disallow out touches 
that you don't like (and that I think most of us would agree 
we don't like), even when that means disallowing obscure 
touches that have merit.  That's where we fundamentally 
disagree.  And that's precisely what I want to get away from 
in the current decisions.

Your proposal doesn't curtail what we can ring: it simply 
requires us to use a contrived description.  That has to be 
a bad thing.
