"So how about a TD Royal or Maximus method that gives lots of 6-bell runs in the corresponding course (the one with all bells coursing in order)?"
That would be lovely. Get to work!
Something vaguely analogous is the use of the method Amalthea Little Alliance in the Pipe 12-part cyclic maximus composition. This gets the bells into mega-tittums (ie all bells coursing in order), exploits the tittums music in plain bob, and then produces beautiful and unexpected run music in Amalthea.

The relevant leads from the first part are below. They're the crowning glory of rung maximus leads in three centuries of 12-bell ringing...

So how about a TD Royal or Maximus method that gives lots of 6-bell runs
in the corresponding course (the one with all bells coursing in order)?
That would seem to give more scope for prolonging the music by small
variations on that course...
