Your examples are of palindromic treble dominated methods and obviously
stopping treble at 4ths in plain bob gives little bob but you and the
Central Council are ignoring what would happen in non-pallindromic
non-treble dominated methods
Study these and I think that you would find that to accommodate the q-set,
one section would need to flow in reverse PN

But if there is no primary hunt then to cmplete the q-set,  the 'missed out
changes' would have to be obtained in one section by the reversal oif PN
