Hm. Of those POAs, you've split up one of the two pairs (bilabial and labiodental being the other) I think of as most similar, namely pharyngeal vs. epiglottal. AIUI epiglottals are most of the things we used to think were pharygeals before epiglottals were widely known of; in any case, they're similar. Dental and alveolar are pretty similar too. Ah well, I suppose you have a /T/. Alex
