My point is, we are not dealing with things evenly here. A Surprise 
method reduced to single-lead stays as a Surprise - but a principle 
turns into a Plain or a TD method. I don't like that bias.

By the "quack like a duck" argument, just as the Surprise method still 
looks like a Surprise method when reduced to a single lead, so the 
principle still looks like a principle.
