How about this:

720 PB Minor

(null), x16
(1 = 1b), 12
(1 = 1b & 6 > 4 & 5 < 5), 14
(rounds), 1234

Condition format is [bell number] [test] [position in row] with b added for
backstroke, and rules are listed in increasing precedence. I have assumed
that the test is against the position the bell will be in if the condition
were true and the place notation executed. This is similar to 6 = 5 being a
call Wrong in Kent Minor i.e. the position the tenor will be in after the
call has been made.

We now need to think how this works in Treble-Bob etc to avoid mixing the
treble's lead and snap. A mask format might be useful too (e.g. 1xxxx6).
