It isn't clear how to generalize your particular examples into rules for
handling all examples.  While the examples are helpful, they don't really
provide much confidence in the concepts without those underlying rules.  Can
you please try to formulate your proposal into a set of more generic rules
for handling all cases?  Trying to formalize the rules would also help us
(and you) to understand if and where rules might be missing.
