In ancient times it was not always felt to be so. To give you an idea, 
look at the 'Bristol' chapter in Bob Smith's book 'Standard Methods'. It 
says: 'Bristol like London, Superlative and Rutland does not extend 
perfectly onto all numbers although there are extensions to Royal and 
Maximus which carry the name Bristol'.

The reservation is there because the extensions of Bristol do not 
preserve the extending-lead of Bristol Major. Book was published in 
1980, based on a series of articles which appeared in the RW a few years 

Not saying that I agree with those sentiments!
