Well, no, but what I was concerned with is having a system for spelling them.

Anything that takes plurals or other affixes should be considered 
assimilated, and should be spelt according to the rules of KS. 
Anything else should be considered an unassimilated loanword.

That would give is jaz, jazek but <i>allegro non troppo</i>. And if 
someone preferred to write <i>jazz</i> they could do so. (The Welsh 
offer both <i>jazz</i> and jas, jasaidd.
