Absolutely so. Except, and I know we've done this to death before, I
still do not like the division of similarly-constructed methods into
totally different categories.
Why do we have to call the 2nd's place version of Parkway Surprise Royal
(-50-14.50-50.36.14-70.58.16-16.70-16-90) a "Differential Hunter"? It's
not a differential, it's a Surprise Royal method.
Similarly, why would we want to call 2nd's place Bristol Major anything
other than a Surprise Major method? Admittedly the classification may be
technically difficult, but if you accept it is a method, it seems daft
to call it anything else.
