Certainly the email sent round two days before the peal with 
the details suggested that it would be a 1440.

Maybe not.  Before that peal, only DCCB Major was named. 
I'm sure that will turn out to have indefinite extensions, 
other than the obvious one, that are all equally good under 
the CC decisions.  Only one will contract to give DCCB 
Minor, and it seems quite possible that DCCB Minor will have 
other extensions too.  So it would have been possible to 
have named DCCB Minor something else.
