See, I think my greatest problem is that I spend too much time here. Now I feel like creating a etabnannimous (hah, take that anyone who was still pronouncing it with an /e/ at the start!) orthography that has lots of NOTs floating around: <fd>=/g/ because the point of articulation that is not in <f> and not in <d> is velar.

As opposed to non-phonemic palatisation? How do can you get that one? Or do you mean that /pj/ and /p_j/ are different phonemes? Oh, and on a vaguely related note, are the pronunciations at <> proper? I can hear things happening with all the other groups, but the palatals group sounds like various interesting things done with the alveolars (like [c] sounds like [tS] and [J\] or [J] like [d_j] or [n_j]). Or am I just randomly hearing them in English? Tristan.
