I'm not talking about that, though.  I'm talking about an 
extent of (say) triples and minor with changes of method 
(and stage) at places that don't fit with your criteria 
(which you still haven't let us seen in any great detail) 
for whereit is permissable to change stage.

Either you have criteria, in which case it will curtail some 
things that are desirable and force people into using a 
silly description, or you don't have criteria which is what 
I want and you have been adamently against.

So please put your cards on the table.  If you want to 
prescribe how changes of stage are allowed, let's see the 
proposal.  But irrespective of what it is, I can pretty much 
guarantee that I won't like it, as whatever you choose, it 
can still be circumvented by silly descriptions, and that is 
precisely what we're trying to get away from in the current
