I think this is a good idea. We have tried it before though:


The Norwich Axioms were perfectly happy with false methods, and those 
with more hunt bells than working bells, but decided "one-lead" methods 
were no good. In light of our recent discussions, I think I might revise 

Also, although the Axioms were simpler and shorter than the MC version, 
they were not the shortest and simplest they could be, since I had the 
additional aim of providing unique classification of methods (that is, 
given a block of place notation, I wanted only one class of method to 
apply). Again, in retrospect I don't know whether this is an absolutely 
essential feature.
