I agree, too. The question is just, what are the exact SWF rules on this?

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.
