A slightly narrow major sixth?

I think this is an absurd characterization. Shall we also call 3/2 a very slightly wide perfect fifth?

I am not attached to that characterization. "Narrow" is a relative term. I was thinking of the two major sixths that appear in the 5-limit, the other being 26/16. 5/3 is clearly the narrower. However, just to call it narrow without reference to anything is kind of silly, if not absurd as you say. So I'll go ahead and change it.
