Use {zei}. AFAIK, {rodbo'e} is the same as {broda zei brode} -- so
{saskrlumani zei cusku} is a lujvo, rather than a tanru.

AFAIK: by fiat. The person who uses the fu'ivla gets to decide what the
place structure is.

The default is, I believe, something like "x1 is specific to <whatever> in
property x2", but you could use pretty much anything, just as with lujvo.

Best to state the place structure assignment somewhere, though (again, as
with lujvo, whose place structure is also not guessable).

{zei} is probably your friend, again.
