We all know the etymology, Dan. My point is that the phonetic environment appears to have cause the word to develop in a slightly anomalous fashion.
Tavas, tavosow are the forms in the texts. They should be the forms in the SWF. Etymology per se is no counter argument.

There is nothing "wrong" with the spelling ‹taves› "except" that it is the form used in KK. It is attested as such in the texts as well as being the etymologically expected form.
