Though for what it’s worth, my reading of this thread to date was that we were talking about very general methods, not just lead-based methods. if others were afflicted by the same confusion then our polls may mean rather less than we’d hoped. 

I think this does reflect one difficulty; the choices of rules we consider can’t be made independently. I’m sure MBD and Don both have coherent notions of “method” in their heads. I strongly suspect that taking half the rules from one set and half the rules from the other set would lead to goobledegook.

Something generated by a finite sequence of place notation? Plus some other junk if desired to make it be a “method"?
