I'm sorry, I seem to have explained my thinking poorly. I did not mean
to define it through its calls, rather through what the ringers
believe its basic, repeating block to be, including where it begins
and ends. Or course, in nearly all cases, where that block begins
and ends is also where we apply calls.

And I think we really do have to trust the ringers to say what
it is they believe they have done, just as we do with so many
other ambiguities.
