As far as I know, the "new rules" (now 7 years old) no longer do
major and minor points of differences. Instead, what we're doing
now is based off of what we know about mediaeval cadency, thanks
to Robert Gayre's work on the matter. Changing the tertiary
charges gets you one cadency step, no matter what. It's the same
thing, basically.
