Jan, in the SWF <u> is the umbrella graph for RMC /y/ and RLC /i/. /y/ is the vowel in French <lune> or German <grün>.

"Kist/cist is fine for RLC pronunciation of the SWF. As I read my little book of SWF, had it been a long vowel, pronounced -ee-, we would have to use an umbrella graph and spell it "kust"! (cf reeg/rug)

But in stressed polysyllables, the SWF uses "y" sometimes for short [ɪ]
and sometimes for long [iː] that alternates with [eː]. We mark this
last "ÿ", as you know.
