Because we don't ring such methods; as Alan says it's simply a trivial variation with only its name to recommend it; Diamond Surprise has much more to recommend it, thought it still has tricky falseness.

1456 singles also allow 3 part tenors together compositions of Cambridge which I'm not seen published elsewhere
For example 
5184 Cambridge S Major
B M W H 23456
      - 42356
x     S 42536
    - S 53462
    -   65432
     -   S 24563
  -   - 35462
S     - 35426
x     2 23564
Repeat twice, S = 1456
60 crus, inc 16 56s & 4 65s, 2 8765s, 3 8756s, 46 LB4, tittums
Off front: 10 5678s, 6 6578s, 28 LB4
