I conjecture that it is likely not possible, based on none having
been published, to the best of my knowledge, but there being at least
one published by Eddie Martin that appeared to be trying to maximize
the number of singles used. But I really don't know.

But then, twenty years ago such a conjecture would have applied to
bobs only Stedman Triples, too, wouldn't it?

Certainly an ordinary singles only composition would be a better
solution than a funny singles only composition.
