Should this be allowed as a valid Cinques method?  Is there a better way to describe this type of ringing?

May I suggest this is the sort of weirdness that is maybe better considered when thinking about cover bells and similar? The 6th really isn't part of any method, it is an internal "cover" bell. You *do* have two lots of doubles, so don't call it Cinques.

The composer in me is already trying to figure out how to get true compositions of this. Without affecting the two hunt bells there are 2880 changes available, so a quarter should be easily possible...
