My two cents: I think it should be marked "full" if the complete sequence
is shown in https://oeis.org/A001476 not in the b-file.  If the b-file
completes the sequence, I suggest putting something like "(complete
sequence)" next to the b-file -- which I did with this sequence a few
minutes ago.

Best regards,
