That's only because M's W happens to be a nice tune, well known, & well
liked.
Teach the dance to someone that has never danced it to the original
music; I'm sure they won't complain whether you use a jig or a reel.
In fact there's nothing to stop you doing it as a spey, provided the
whole set is unaware of the original music.
