I vote for <yta> then. (<yte> and <ite> are out, of course, thanks to
a strange call on Nance's part unquestioned by George as well, namely
writing final <a> even where we know very well that the Middle Cornish
texts had <e>. In UCR and KS, by contrast, this choice makes sense as
our primary temporal frame of reference is later...)
