Hmmm... I am not sure. I suppose that it is a matter of what we
want/practicality. Tell me what you think of this: It is my opinion that it
should apply to only ro'o since it is the single immediately previous UI
cmavo and the definition does not mention clusters; this has a practical
side to it as well: if you want it to apply to a cluster, under this
interpretation, you can always force them into one unit via use of fu'e
and fu'o, whereas if it automatically applied to the entirety of the
immediately previous cluster, then there would be no easy way (aside from
bracketing just one individual cmavo in the cluster with it via fu'e and
fu'o) to make it apply to just one part of the cluster, which is
potentially desirable. I also prefer to bracket longer units, rather than
smaller ones.
