Far from an objection, I agree.

Alright. I'll make the change, then. Also, I should have mentioned this
before, but the French gloss is just as ambiguous. Unfortunately, while I
know French well enough to recognize the ambiguity, I don't know it well
enough to confidently express the specific meaning of each lujvo. So
someone else will have to do that.
