Hi Trevor, I tend to disagree with you on this. I like the current
"conceptual" explanation very much; it makes much more sense from a
musical point of view than yours, which might be simpler but is mainly
about a "graphical" point of view. Could we keep the fourth and fifths
thing somewhere (maybe as a footnote)?

On very other points, I agree with you.
