‚ÄčIt's also worth noting that a lot of methods that have only ever had one
airing (sometimes only as a few leads in a peal of spliced) get full
recognition, and recorded in a way that accords them the same respect as,
say, Bristol.  So it's not even "popular," it's just "meeting the desires
of those who made the rules."

I'm pretty sure some of those methods crammed into less respected corners
are better than many that are given full marks.
