Yes, and there are some other things I want to bring up again lest they
1) The case may convey information, e.g. Liddel&Scott uses capitals for
2) L&S uses different ordering for iota subscriptum/accents/spiritus
than BAGD, at least as far as I can remember.
3) Exact ordering may convey information, e.g. L&S adds word "hence" at
the end of some entries because the next entry depends on the previous.
The information of 1) and 3) can be represented in some other way, but
even if it's taken care of, the subjective quality suffers if lexicons
don't follow the originals.
