Thanks for the explanations, Morne and Jim and others.
I was mislead by the term "tuning" in "quint tuning" when in fact a "quint register" was intended.
There are some accordions that come with a quint register. It is generally rarely used. The main reason is that it is too loud compared to the other reeds. You would like "a bit of fifth" added to the sound, but on an accordion it can only be "a lot".
Like Morne and Jim say, you cannot simply move the reeds over because they will be the wrong size (and you will be missing some at one end.
