Thanks, I now understand better what you mean.

For me, being satisfied that "sxu" is the best prefix at present includes
being satisfied that Thomas' detailed data to the contrary has been seen and
taken into account by whichever experts are recommending "sxu" to us.  For
example, was it a considered input to the Ethnologue ruling?   As reported
to this list, that ruling appears to be based on a (necessarily sketchy)
literature survey, and actually invited "additional information".
