Groups of gliders that include crossing paths aren't considered to be actual glider syntheses. For example, the center two gliders in this group from your construction --

`x = 5, y = 16, rule = B3/S23bo\$2bo\$3o2\$3o\$2bo\$bo3\$3bo\$4bo\$2b3o2\$2b3o\$4bo\$3bo!`

-- would have interacted before they reached this point (e.g., if the four glider salvos were generated by huge faraway shotguns.)

Long story short, the 576-glider pattern would need a glider synthesis of its own, and it looks like that would take quite a few more gliders to untangle all the crossing paths.
