Never violate a universal unless it seems like a good idea at the time

Reading Greenberg's list of universals

I've discovered that Khangaþyagon violates universals 2,3,6,10,12, and
possibly 23 although I'm not sure of his terminology. This is mainly
because Khangaþyagon is based on what seemed plausible to me without
reading the list.

I'd be interested to know how many universals other people's conlangs
violate, and whether this came about naively or deliberately.
