The scribal tradition gives us orthographic forms and patterns. We do not
(as our detractors have often said of us) insist on individual attestations
to choose specific spellings. That is a shallow interpretation of how we
respect the scribal tradition.
You can't argue that the wordform "gavar" violates the scribal tradition,
even though that form is not attested in what MC what we have left to us
(particularly as it is attested in both OC and LC)."
