Well, just entering into the spirit of the
thing. Personally, I consider the whole issue of
pre-1917 discriminations somewhat superfluous.
Just like your English case, really.
Excepting the Petrin reforms and IO
introduction, before 1917 there were no
clear-cut boundaries, and the changes just mean
some letters gradually falling into disuse. I
guess I might dig out a history book which would
attribute those interim changes to some texts,
but would those markers be truely recognisable?
