Sorry, my memory did not serve me well. I think you have previously referred

I got confused and found contradictions.

Apparently there are _several_ mapping tables, with e.g. four (or more?)
alternative mappings for PRIME, and whatever their status might be, they
aren't part of a transliteration standard that refers to, say, ISO 5426.
