I agree. That is why in Alys I wrote pednwysk 'headgear, hat' but penwysker 'hatter'. In the first the prefix is stressed, in the second never. 
I agree that decisions need to be made about all items containing cam-, pen-, etc.

The word ùnderstondya has primary stress on the o and secondary stress on the ù. That means that in the compound
camùnderstondya the cam- is not stressed and should be spelt <cam>, not <camm, cabm>.

  If there is to be (secondary) stress on the prefix, as they suggest, these words should be written pedn-seythen, pell-gowser, camm-neves, corr-donner, and cabm-onderstondya.
