What do we do about SI, SA and ZOI?

Option 1:

  • SI is an allowed ZOI delimiter.
  • SI after ZOI eats through delimiters and text seperately, so four SI in a row are required to erase a ZOI.
  • Fastest way to erase a ZOI clause is to use SA + something that occured before the ZOI; SA+ZOI doesn't help at all; it just puts you back in the ZOI. Since SI can be a ZOI delimiter, SA+ZOI+SI is just a ZOI clause ready for non-Lojban text.

 
Option 2:

  • SI is an allowed ZOI delimiter.
  • SI after ZOI eats the entire thing, ZOI and all.
  • SA+ZOI puts you back in the ZOI. Since SI can be a ZOI delimiter, SA+ZOI+SI is just a ZOI clause ready for non-Lojban text.

 
Option 3:

  • SI is NOT an allowed ZOI delimiter.
  • SI after ZOI eats through delimiters and text seperately, so four SI in a row are required to erase a ZOI.
  • SA+ZOI puts you back in the ZOI. Since SI can NOT be a ZOI delimiter, SA+ZOI+SI is the fastest way to delete the whole thing.
  • This would mean that the only case where WORD + SA + same category as WORD + SI doesn't == nothing would be with ZO.

 
I have a strong preference for option three; it gives the most user friendliness, IMO. What do you all think?
