youd be surprised that there is the job of restaurators who are
trained only for cementing vases, cups, pictures. etc.
you can repair almost everything with enough effort when the parts are
not kinda pulverized.
for such graduations like
"light damaged(variants: broken,injured etc)"
i consider to create another universal "degree"-markers.
they have 5 graduations and use 5 vowels ( cool !)
assume "strong" with a more general meaning here:
-or very "strong" (too strong, too much, to heavy etc)
-er normal "strong"
-ir light "strong"
-ur very light "strong"
however my language isnt anything more than a pile of papers yet.
