[r-t] Grandsire Triples (was old methods)

"Of course one can get a true 5040 of Grandsire triples without using singles - the judicious use of 5ths place bobs played against 3rds place bobs and 7ths place plain leads can break the q-set parity by linking two leads together instead of three"
Though on reflection this seems logical, I don't think I had seen any compositions like this before. Aquick look at Don's website shows two examples (below).  Have these both been rung before?
On a philosophical level I like these very much. I think this is because I really don't like to concept of a "single" in Grandsire being described as a call acting over two changes.  I think a call by definition can only act on a single row.  
Of course, I wouldn't take the Woolley approach and try to "ban" conventional Grandsire, but I think compositions with "3.123" singles could be more consistently described (ie spliced).
