By that reasoning would not Decision (D)B.2 say that if we include an
MEB in a peal we must include at least two MEBs, and similary we can't
ring three 1,440s and one 720 as a peal of minor? And (E)A.4. that we
cannot have a method with but a single hunt bell? And assorted other
oddities scattered through the Decisions?

I would be surprised if the Methods Committee viewed a single lead
entity as a method, but the Decisions do seem at best ambiguous on
that point.
