(b) However, my concept of a ritual is as a procedure that really ought to take minutes or hour, not as something you can dash off in a second or two. I wouldn't use the ritual magic rules for any thing quick, even if the rules allow me to do so.
A) The op is referring to Ritual Magic (B242) though. That is just a flexible version on regular GURPS Magic.
B) I feel the same, I see why they picked it as a name though Book/Path would have been better
