yes, I appreciate this. My question was exactly this - do acrostic
psalms like 119 have headings in form of a single letter indicating the
acrostic nature in the Hebrew source or is this simply the way
translators have marked up the text to indicate a poetic feature
otherwise lost in the translation.

Former would be "canonical", latter would be "non-canonical" according
to my understanding of the OSIS definition in question.
