Indeed it is not. Would the KKites accept a SWF/T dictionary with a SWF/M paragraph in the front?

Just so! Enough tergiversation and disingenuous equivocation; let's see some equal treatment for trad graphs.

With a view to doing precisely this, I've already converted the PDF SWF/M Dictionary into an editable Pages document. The prokect has stalled due to illness and the greater attractions of creating new works for children and young learners. However, I'd be quite happy to provide Evertype with a copy of the files.
Surely MAGA could not object to a samizdat edition using (alleged) trad graphs, especially once you've corrected the many editorial errors in the existing version.
