Is that true?  AFIA there were no rules about naming methods until the CC
decided to try to impose some order.  

In the 1920s the Council still claimed the right to name methods itself but
later relented.  Does anyone know when the current rule (peal on 7+ and
extent on 6-) was first formalised?  It's in the 1968 Decisions but I can't
track down when it was first accepted.
