If we do that, the situation will improve, but only very very
slightly and in the wrong direction.  Those letters 'f', 'o' and 'o'
must have a more prominent face, indeed just as prominent
or "loud" as the classic 'prefix' style puts in the "first different
letter". So it has to be "loud" to have any meaning.

If Eli allows my proposal, it's better for everybody, I think.  I've
described it fully.  If he doesn't we can go with yours.
