My dia/idiolect: Agree with all those.
I have [O] /O/ in the *starred* words in the next list, [A]/a/ in the rest:

These also rhyme with the word in question with (my) [A] /a/: squat, squash,
squab, squabble, waddle, twaddle, swaddle/swaddling [clothes].
s/t/d+w, (s)k+w seems to exhaust the possibilities, aside from foreign words
(we've had this discussion before......)
wattle and daub: [wAtl=] [dOb]
It appears the WIQ is an outright obscenity mainly in the US......
