Confirmed.  Also see Bodriggy, Hayle, and Bodrifty, Madron.  Both much too far west for non-assibilation to have been preserved under any other circumstances.

I tried hard to argue the case for Resrudh on the Signage Panel, but was outvoted on that.  (Res- is retained by the SWF names when unstressed.  Rys only when stressed).

The dreadful Kammbronn has been retained, but in this case, it was taken out of our hands by the Partnership (we were close to agreement on Kammbron/Cammbron, which accords with SWF rules.  Kammbronn does not, according to Albert).  This remains the only place-name that was not decided by the Panel.  I've managed to prevent historical foul-ups (as per CLB) in all bar 5 so far (out of 3,000 +) which, for a lone voice, isn't bad and warrants my sticking with it.
