Surely a better solution is for the CC to correct its Decisions to
accurately reflect what real ringers choose to ring. This is not
the first peal that has included methods that are false in the plain
course. The prohibition of methods false in their plain course has
clearly outlived whatever usefulness it may once have had.

"In 1210 a Church council at Paris condemned Amalric and David, and
forbade the reading of Aristotle's 'metaphysics and natural
philosophy,' or of 'comments'--commentaries--thereon. As the
prohibition was repeated by a papal legate in 1215 we may assume that
the decree of 1210 had stimulated the reading of these otherwise
forbidding works."                   -- Will Durant, _The Age of Faith_
