Hi Graham,

To some extent I agree about the particular method.  But you also said:

"For example, a method should really be defined as the shortest/simplest 
place notation that helps ringers learn what is required."

and it's this that I was taking issue with.  "Should" sounds like trying 
to legislate (or at least advocate), and on this topic it seems hopeless 
and undesirable to do so...

cheers, Ander
