Well, in a sense the historical backbone of changeringing is a development
from ringing rounds towards changing the speed of the bell and swapping
bells over. It's not far-fetched to suggest that the continuation of this
development will lead to bells moving more than one place.

It does seem a disappointment that new things do not appear to be classified
and recorded in a transparent way, but simply discarded.
