Sure, I agree; after all, I'm here even though I barely qualify
as a conlang creator. But I fully agree with those who say that
studying a conlang shouldn't be treated as equivalent, in terms
of its overall benefit to one's education, as studying a
E-o may qualify as a marginal exception; after all, it's also
a marginal example of a natlang, given the small number of
native (bilingual) speakers.
