One thing that still makes me uneasy is what the difference is between starting Glasgow Surprise Major at the snap, and Glasgow-started-at-the-snap Surprise Major. I dislike having two separate mechanisms to deal with a single real situation and feel that a "nice set of rules" would allow either but not both of starting a method at a different point and still calling it the same thing or naming a rotation as a different method.

Maybe a "nice set of rules" isn't possible, but I really hope it is and I'm not sure I'm ready to give up on that yet.
