For any prime limit, we could consider the most characteristic linear temperament of a particular et to be the one leaving off the last member of the MT reduced basis. It is interesting to note that the characteristic linear temperament of 99 and 130 is the same. Of course we can do the same for planar temperaments, etc.

Wouldn't want to do that--look at those three high-powered commas!

This is seriously cool.

Does it have to be prime (not odd) limit?

Fraid so. It occurs to me another fun game to play with these is to find the corresponding Fokker blocks.

Yeah, Carl, these are _tuning system building_ considerations and not

_simultaneous consonance_ considerations.

Or better yet, the most compact blocks where ratio odd-limit measures

distance from a central 1/1 (this is what I refer to as the van

Prooijen metric). Remember, these are constrained to be periodicity

blocks, so will _not_ be ellipsoids.
