D&D House Rules - Muticlass to Gestalt Transition

A character must take two levels under 3E Multiclass Rules before they may Gestalt the Classes. (Method A)

Two Classes is Balance. Three Classes is Underpower.

Change it so that take 2 levels in primary class, then gestalt level 2 from remaining classes. Then Gestalt All Classes. (Method B)

For two classes, Method A and Method B are identical, but Method B adjust for more than two classes to prevent them from falling behind.

20Wizard 18 // Cleric 18Fighter 16 // Rogue 16 // Sorcerer 16Fighter 17 // Rogue 17 // Sorcerer 17

Now, how do characters Transition from Two Classes to Three Classes? They take the first level of the new class alone, and gestalt the third class. This will make their character behind in their third class compared to characters that start on a three classes build unless the switch at level 4.
