This doesn't mention {zo zo da} and {zoi zo da ........ zo de}.

If we can't assume left-to-right precedence, and {zo}
wins over everything else, then in those cases {da} and {de}
would be quoted by {zo}. Also the difference between
{zo da si de} and {zo da si si} should be mentioned here.

Even within {lo'u ... le'u}?

Even FAhO? If FAhO is active within LOhU-LEhU, what about

Is {le'u si} ungrammatical?

Can it use ZO, FAhO, LEhU?

What about {zo da bu} and {da zei de bu}?
