But if that criterion is applied, surely Georgian Xucuri/Khutsuri
should be separated from Georgian Mxedruli/Mkhedruli: Although there
roughly is a one-to-one correspondence between the two, and although
both are generally applied to the same language (though normally to
different stages of it), they definitely are not mutually intelligible
(and in fact knowledge of Xucuri seems to be quite low in Georgia).
