I have also considered this word to be more along the lines of a "race"
rather than a mere culture (and thus following the definitions of tutle,
kapli, maska), which would be fairer. In this case, more terbri would
need to be added. To be honest, I would also advocate that xispo should
likewise be considered a "race".
