Yes. Of course we've been over the Legolas issue elsewhere, and I retain the opinions I expressed in those threads.

The upshot is that I agree that BoLT should not be used to augment the Valaquenta.

But my first question was actually different. It has nothing to do with consistencies, inconsistencies, or credibility. It is simply whether our "Valaquenta" is supposed to be the Valaquenta, the actual document within Middle-earth called the "Valaquenta". If it is, then use of BoLT material is right out a priori. If not, such use still fails against other problems.
