Remember than the Empiror determines the current dialect. Similarly, I'm sure
that he determines issues such as this. As such, Okrand has essentially become
our de facto empiror of the language. I ran into this recently when I
remembered Okrand suggesting a functional limit to the comparative construction
at one time, then exceeding that limit in canon later.
