Ah, so a band ringing the royal *could* name it something else if they
chose, as one of the other extension paths, albeit not one with a stop
along the way in royal, could then be called Semiquincentenary. And, in
that case, no method at royal could then be called Semiquincentenary
Alliance Royal. Right?
