The notion of a standard calling that is true to pretty much any minor, 
seems to me to have been quite generally accepted by average conductors 
for a long time. I just looked at my old copy of the CCCBR Collection of 
Minor Methods where the standard calling of 720 is given.  There is 
certainly no hint that it may not be true for some methods. Despite the 
fact that any exceptions would not have been in the collection I wonder 
how many false peals have crept through as a consequence of an 
assumption that the standard calling was universally true. After all, it 
is not usual to quote the comps for individual 720s unless there be a 
special reason.
