Scoring query for boats with different PY for different configurations

At our club we have always had an unwritten understanding that if you sail a boat that has different configurations and asscoiated PY for each configuration (for example Laser Full rig and Laser Radial rig) then you get multiple series scores based on the number of configurations sailed in the series.
For example a Laser sailor sails in an 8 race series using a full rig for 3 races and a radial rig for 4 races. Our scoring would be that the sailor gets two series scores; one for the full rig (3 results plus 5 DNC) and the other for the radial rig (4 results plus 4 DNC)
I should add that our club series scoring is defined as races to count will be the 1st whole number above half the number of races completed in the series.
RRS 78.1 (compliance with class rules) possibly covers this situation but we are considering writing something into the 'scoring' section of our NoR to specifically cover this point.
I would welcome any views or feedback on how other clubs handle this.
