[r-t] Extension - Little methods, Penultimus,

I have been looking at how the rules apply to Bastow and Bistow.
I was fine with Bastow on odd numbers, although the single dodges turn into 
double dodges.
I was then expecting to find Bistow on even numbers, also with twin hunt bells, 
but (perhaps not surprisingly) it hasn't been rung.
But then I saw:

Decision (G)E.2(a):
There must be no places made above the hunt bell at the half-lead or below the 
hunt bell at the lead-end change in the parent.

So does this mean that there is no Bistow Minor?
(My construction had been x16.

And presumably it also implies that there is also no single-stage extension of 
any Little even-stage method where the hunt bell goes to an odd place, or any 
Little odd-stage method where the hunt bell goes to an even place?

Incidentally, I don't think anyone answered the question I posed last year (Fri 
Dec 23):
"So, would the CC regard Ashford Little Bob Major as this?
