day (I must have been tired :-). So OK for the theoretical possibility of
an independent harmonization with vs. 28, like you say. It should indeed
be considered. I would accept it as the most likely solution were there
only a few witnesses to it. But here, there's a massive agreement of so
many different texts that I prefer a genealogical connection. But you are
right to examine all the possibilities, and this is one.
