Unfortunately, it won't work in naive form; I found a counterexample:
If the "y" is omissible from:
bastyrapli < "basti rapli" = "replace-repeat"
then it becomes the different lujvo
bas-tra-pli < "basti tarti pilno" = "replace-behave-use"
(Don't ask me what they mean, but they are both valid lujvo.)

No, the slinku'i test says that if a string is potentially ambiguous
between le'avla and cmavo+lujvo, the le'avla is banned.

I'm beginning to think that this is the best alternative available.
