I do still have trouble imagining someone calling this way without being much more wordy than when using role terms. For example, consider Chart Guthrie's duple improper dance, "Hey in the Barn":
I wrote about positional calling back in 2019, but that was before I'd danced to it. I recently attended a dance weekend that used entirely positional calling, however, and now I have more informed thoughts!
This was in some ways a better-than-usual context for positional calling:

The kids are getting older now, and are playing independently enough that it would be good if they always had my phone number. Lily (9yo) has had a piece of paper in her backpack for a while now, but unless she's going to or from school she won't have it with her. Several rounds of "repeat after me" weren't working, so this weekend we made up a song for it. After just a few times singing it she has it down.
Going by sales isn't perfect: in addition to the noise inherent to small samples sizes there were also a few times when someone wanted to buy a shirt but we didn't have one in their size, and this was a bit more common in the more popular sizes.
Here's how well this matches our initial order:
