Looking at the blue line they do, but structurally that is surely misleading. For instance, a 1458 call would only affect half the bells, and those bells are also the only ones who make a place in 4ths over an unchanging bell in 3rds. If I were ringing the method to handbells it would seem like there are two different sets of work, would it not?

This is intentional. As I see it, this is the most interesting bit of this discussion as you have a situations where you've got 2 identical blue lines, offset, yet still creating a full valid method.
To my knowledge, this is the first time a method of this type of symmetry has been described, does anyone know of a previous instance?
