I would guess that you're right about su'ai BAI because that's the way
all the other SE work with BAI. Also as for connectives, as far as I know,
only seju (or se.u, segi'u etc) is meaningful, no other SE+connective
combination is useful. So I would guess that su'ai+JE is GCG
(grammatically correct garbage).
