It's a shame you can't simultaneously avoid 56 place 
notations and three blows in one place.  Consider when the 
treble makes point 4ths.  To avoid three blows in one place, 
the bell at the front must be doing a Stedman whole turn 
which has the front four bells crossing either side of the 
point.  To avoid falseness you need -56 or 56- place 
notation around the point.
