    1) Killed by invocation of authorities. Well, OK, so you disagree.
    Can you be more precise and say with precisely what you disagree?
    What is it these authorities say?
    As stated, my main interest today is in Kurdish, but nevertheless,
    now that you brought up Uyghur, I am interested in what you think
    the current usage is. I wrote

    > Position: Isol Init Med Final
    > Kurdish H: init init med init
    > Uyghur H: init init med med

    that Uyghur H uses two shapes: "initial Heh" in isolated and
    initial position, and "medial Heh" in medial and final position.

    How would you describe current Uyghur H shaping?

    2) You were silent about the Kurdish part. Do you have an opinion
    about the correct treatment of Kurdish H?
