Technically, by this definition, Playford is out. As well as all the "ethnic"
dances: Angus Reel, Postie's Jig, Korobushka, Road to the Isles/Gae
Gordons/Scotland the Brave, etc. I think through 1st edition Playford is
reasonable -- it will be a long time before this kingdom can eliminate it
(assuming anyone would want to and I don't believe they do).

Very sticky, but it could be done. Personally, I don't have any problem with a
variation if the reconstructor can show how it logically comes from the
original. It's the "I couldn't figure it out so I made something up" and the "I
didn't like it as the original so we changed it" that I dislike. Ala Cecil

Same argument as for the goal.
