No I don't and it can't be proved unless we are told the names of
those requesting this change.

This may or may not be true. What I think is true is that most Unified
users are tolerant of UC(r) and are familiar with its Tudor basis,
even if they don't write it, so very few of them now pronounce
[ˈflɛxǝs] etc. On the other hand I have heard a number of Kemyn
users pronounce [ˈflɛxǝs] etc. and one of them told me that one of
the things she found lacking in the SWF was the absence of medial 'gh'
because as a Kemyn user she pronounced [ˈflɛxǝs] etc. I think that
most Kemyn users have no idea that it is an archaic pronunciation when
a medial 'gh' is pronounced whereas most Unified users, especially
those that belong to Agan Tavas, do.
