Oh, I like the sound very much, too. My favourite vowel system is either /i i- e a o u/ or (as in Draseléq) /i y e Y & a o u/ (that's <i ü e ö ä a o u>). The "compromise" sounds really good, especially since I'm gathering evidence that the language had a phonemic /i-/ not so long ago -- which could account for the sound being still present at least allophonically. --Pablo Flores
