When I pointed out the lack of vowel length, it did not occur to me 
that I seemed to onicmahpilhuih Michael as if he were tlahtlacoani... I 
merely meant to "point out" my own decision not to specify vowel length 
(as is my wont).

Further, I mis-spelled the name of Louise C. Schoenhals.  I hope I 
didn't cause anyone to spin their wheels in searching for her book.
