    No, it doesn't. Anything currently spelled is correct. The only possible
    "spelling error" is using a HHFV on anything but a VAV, and that can't
    happen with existing text, because HHFV doesn't exist in existing text.

    Any other "errors" or "changes" are unavoidable facts of disunification,
    brought on by the facts of Hebrew orthography.

    Is it truly necessary to argue this whole thing All Over Again? When
    things are decided on this list or by UTC, do we really have to keep
    re-opening the case?
