I mean, I'm not complaining or anything, but gosh, you've been so
adamant in the past against variants that can apply to different
languages without meaning precisely the same thing, that this does come
as a surprise.
Simple English and français fondamental would certainly be different in
the details. They'd be quite similar in intent, of course, but the same
could have been said for Early Modern English and Early New High German.
