Taking *what* too far, Craig?
We have a rule. -ssya is [sjə], as in passya, encressya.
We have a rule, -ssy- in other positions is [ʃ], as in passyon,
Since -ssy- has more than one reading, we need to have rules for the
distribution. So we need to know what -ssyans will stand for. It looks
to me like it will be [sjəns].
But there's nothing "dangerous" about asking such questions. KS is
meant to be precise, as precise as we can make it.
