I'm presuming that Erin Major would have 6 blows behind.  Why would that 
be considered as the natural extension?  Is that not contrary to the 
thinking behind hunting methods which don't extend by allowing N blows 
behind?  I accept that we are talking about different method types 
(hunting versus principles), but shouldn't there be some commonality in 
the underlying ideas.

If Erin Major with 6 blows behind is the extension of Erin Triples, than 
are we moving a step closer to saying that Plain Bob Triples is the 
extension of Plain Bob Minor rather than Grandsire Triples?
