Stuart...Why is the rotation symbol necessary at all? Since you are
writing both the beginning and ending handshape, isn't it obvious that
a twist happens automatically, to get to the second position? If the
answer is yes, then it could be written without the rotation symbol. I
wonder if the movement isn't similar to the ASL signs for US and OUR?
That is a traveling curved arrow, not a rotation, but the ending
position makes it clear that a rotation occurred during the
traveling...Take a look at the attached...

Would this work for you? Anyone have opinions?
