First, I want to say great work in bringing up those great quantity of details to the discussion. I would discuss them at a later post.

I think that this bring up a greater problem of what to and not to add in our version, depending of our source text. As Findegil has posted earlier, we have no rule as to how and when to add outside material to our work. We had no problem in adding when we used old base text, eg. The Fall of Gondolin, but we do have a problem when we dealt with the Ainulindalë and Valaquenta because the base text was very advanced in terms of when it was written.

If it were up to me, I would try to add as much as possible while trying to maintain a sense of canon to our work. Can a specific set of rules can be made? I don't think so.
