And the harm in that is what, so long as they use a composition to which it
is true? While the creating of such a composition is often challenging
(though so is creating one of, say, Girton College Surprise), selecting and
proving one is pretty much the same as for any other method. Is someone any
more likely to ring something inappropriate for such a method than they are
for one with PU falseness?
