Can you explain a bit more? 

The idea is that {LE broda} can be seen as an abbreviation
of {LE xe ka broda}, where the syntax allows it: 
{LE xe ka mi djuno ma'u du'u ke'a brodu} 
and {LE xe ka ro pendo be ke'a cu brodu} 
and {LE xe ka ke'a e mi klama}
cannot be abbreviated thus. 

The scheme does not offer abbreviations for se/te/ve ka, 
though Nick may eventually magic one up.
