Is |eu| always [@j], or only after labialization?  I would
have expected [ej]...

Then a spelin reeform replacing all clear |y| with |u| is
practically inevitable.  =P  Would it hurt to write |dyn|
as |dun|?

Speaking of spelin reeforms...  I just had a deeper look
at that Irish Gaelic Kauderwelsch booklet...  argh!
Irish never fails to give me a headache!   =\
