Not on the facts.  But I agree that the numbers should be the default,
and that "common" and "cut" should be required for the C forms.

The appearance of scores with single measures of changing meter, as in
"Here Comes the Sun", is a very cogent argument to me.  I asked for this
many years ago.  I wish I had thought of that in terms of changing
meter.  You just don't see "C" except at the beginning of lines.  daveA

Paying more at the gas pump?  Bush's Oil Sheikh Buddies, who support Al
Qaeda, Palestinian terrorists, & hate-U.S. school systems everywhere,
need more of your money now to arm and pay Iraqis to kill Americans.
