Yes, it looks like. Which is surprising for me to be honest :)

OK. I'm sorry then, we should collect the ideas first... I hoped at
first that going A..Z would be the simplest solution.

But you are right, spelling like english word 'yet' with 't' replaced
with 'd' is a very appealing solution.

So instead of voting with those options I gave at start, I ask
everybody to express your opinion about this spelling.
