@atlantiza Wow, I had no idea Google was this weird. When I click to the end of the results, Google reports only 25 hits for バラの寝床 and 120 for 薔薇の寝床! This is so strange. Thank you for alerting me to this.

comment Terms for 'viewpoint': 視点 vs 観点
Some of the answers to this 教えて! suggest that one's 観点 is more likely to arise through the consideration of multiple viewpoints, premises, and ways of thinking. This may be somewhat different from simply a conceptual version of 視点.

comment What is the te-form of 問う?
@dainichi Yes, I definitely agree that there are probably no useful rules here in this explanation. The author would probably suggest that these other words were left alone because a pressing need to disambiguate them in speech was not present. However, it is pointed out that 負うて is not unheard of because 負う, like 問う, is not widely used (at least when compared with 追う).

comment What is the te-form of 問う?
@TsuyoshiIto Indeed. It could make some sense to me though that in the past, the need to vocally disambiguate the te-form of this verb could have prompted a trend to preserve its dictionary form when conjugating, simply because it is so easily pronounced?
