And this is how the framework defines it.
The current decisions say:
(D)C.2. Peals consisting of extents and/or round blocks shall only be
called Spliced if each extent or round block is spliced.
Reading this there is a sense that its authors thought that ringing 5
extents of spliced and 2 extents in single methods was somehow
cheating, so a peal shouldn't be considered spliced even though most
of it was.
