I could perhaps have expressed myself more clearly, but I was 
responding to MBD's point:

My point is that it would be easier to sell the idea of the identity 
change to the hoi poloi if there was a historical (i.e pre-C20) 
precedent.  :-)

I agree with JEC that call changes don't involve the identity change, 
and nor would full-pull method ringing (which I would support).
