Thanks for a great analysis, Igor.

These variants test the notion I suggested: I think this would be a take even if the outside blot were on the bar. Although I did not say so, I was thinking of your first reference position, 51S-55A-F-C , and mentally adjusting by bringing another Blue checker into the zone .

In addition to putting a White checker on the roof (which does turn out to be a take), I also tried moving White's other blot up to the 4pt and 5pt. The results dovetail nicely with your analysis.
