Principles of decomposition

Jun 3 at 9:29 PM
Thank you very much for this data!

What were the principles for decomposition?

A few comments, or questions, respectively:

丘:d/t(斤,㇐) – Most literate Chinese speakers would argue that 斤 has two left-falling strokes, while 丘 has only one.
𠔊:d(丘,八) – 𠔊 is orthographically a variant of 長. (There are many other variants of 長, including 镸, 𡕣, 𠑿, 𠤐, 兏, 𠑷, 仧, 𠇬, 𨱘, 𨱗, and the official simplified form 长),
兵:msp(𠔊) – To define 兵 as a variant of 𠔊, “modified in some special way” seems quite arbitrary. Why not 兵:d(丘,八), and 𠔊:msp(兵) – although I wouldn’t agree with that either, because I think it simply doesn’t make sense to completely ignore orthographic and semantic facts.

You say: “When there's more than one possible configuration, I've selected one only.”
By what criteria?
