comment Is there a “right” or “best” way to write this Okinawan expression for “cheers”?
That's an excellent point -- there might not be an "official" way to write Okinawan right now, but that hasn't always been the case, and back in the day hiragana was preferred. That has to have been a big influence on the present situation (even if the details of how the kana are used are different), one I shouldn't have overlooked.

comment On the two equivalents on maps of “you are here” (現在地{げんざいち} and 現在位置{げんざいいち})
No argument there! I should have restricted that comment to the case of these two potential entries specifically.

comment Reading of 退く meaning “Go away”
FWIW the Meiji bible says "サタンよ退け" with furigana indicating the reading しりぞけ.

comment How accurate is the ふりがな on Aozora Books?
The Japanese government isn't being prescriptive in the way the AF is. It's just dictating a standardized curriculum for schools (and by extension groups who have a legal obligation to write documents so that a person educated in a Japanese school can read them).

comment Accent changes in conjugation
@ZhenLin Half-assed matching of the style in the question (thought maybe that was the preferred way of writing it around here, implicitly attributing low initial mora to some later phonetic process). The LHH style for accentless words was failure to follow through on that idea, heh.

@Ataraxia It can't be よわ. Has to be わよ.
