I don't see how that helps with this problem. If I search for the
Northern Thai word /kin/ with the low tone, which means 'smell', I want
to find it whichever way round SAKOT and TONE-1 are, and I don't want to
find /kin/ with the rising tone, which is implied by having no tone
mark and means 'to eat'.
