[r-t] Yorkshire Surprise Minor, etc

Two desultory observations that may nonetheless be relevant to this

1) I believe most ringers would find that Yorkshire Surprise Major has a
lot more in common with a host of non-surprise methods than it does with,
say, Double Darrowby Surprise. For example:

- Christmas Delight Major

- Yorkshire Alliance major

- Wicken Hybrid Major

- Percy's Tea Strainer Treble Place Major

2) It is not possible to distinguish between Treble Bob, Delight or
Surprise in treble dodging minimus methods. I guess the Council's taxonomy
has avoided this problem in the past by pretending that treble dodging
minimus methods couldn't exist, but we appear to finally be on the verge of
escaping this anomaly. Though I guess the way the rules are currently
written they'll all be considered Treble Bob, anyway.
