But surely Grandsire is one of the easiest things to ring on twelve -
wouldn't it be nice not to have to (a) learn a fiddly link method to
save a few changes and (b) have to keep people right in said link

higher-numbers ringers are sufficiently narrow-minded to turn their
noses up at Grandsire Max?
