No, for consistency within the current rules it would have to be
called Plain Bob Triples. It's a special case in at least two ways.

On on the flip side, if you go back to the eighteenth century
Grandsire Bob Triples was what we, today, call Plain Bob Triples. (If
I'm mistaken about this, I trust one of the folks on this list better
informed about the history of ringing will correct me.)
