To be clear, I mean officially-designated sub-selma'o. For example,
"vu'u" is in VUhU1 and "ne'o" is in VUhU3; both are in VUhU. As such,
both "ma'oi vu'u" and "ma'oi ne'o" refer to VUhU, but do not get more
specific than that; it would be good to be able to say maybe something like
"ma'oi'e vu'u" and mean specifically VUhU1 (as opposed to VUhU as a whole
or VUhU2, VUhU3, etc., or any other selma'o); likewise, "ma'oi'e ne'o"
would output/refer to/result in only and specifically VUhU3.
