Out of curiosity, could you explain the motivation for this choice?

Comment #5: Re: Not shortest form.

As selpa'i said below (not directed to you, but explains the motivation):

"Did you ever consider that someone might prefer the
sound or form of a non-lowest scoring lujvo? Are you aware of the fact that
a lot of people have started to use longer forms in conjunction with
regular suffixes, because it requires both the speaker and the listener to
learn fewer rafsi?"
