      ...I should clarify that I've heard, vaguely, that some natlangs have
      nasal vowel harmony. But I don't know which they are or any more
      details. Wikipedia says vowel harmony can be based on backness,
      height, rounding, advanced/retracted tongue root, or nasalization, but
      it only gives natlang examples for backness and rounding.
