You can't have one without the other.
As regards the Ashtead variation - no I would not think of it as regular..
Thinking about this in terms of the CUP 'usual' definition - non-2nds or
nths lead-heads in even bell ringing is not usual.
Without looking at it further, the 4ths place variation must have a
different lead-end from the 6ths place one which is not a property *I*
associate with regularity.
At least, the people I generally ring with are always a little happier if I
say the new method I want them to learn is regular.
