Yes. A lead of "A" is not a lead of a method so must be a non-method block
(the negative definition). You could ring it in spliced, but cannot ring a
peal of it on its own, unless you can get a composition with only leadend
calls. The difficulty remains though that if you rang Don's composition of
"A", you could neither say that you had rung a peal of "A Surprise Major",
nor a peal of "A Block Major".
