I guess what you're saying with the VMs is that in time - as with the coelacanth - other related objects from its family might well surface [*], giving us additional context to work with. However, I suspect you have a long (if not perpetual) wait... though I'd still be delighted to be proved wrong! :-)

I guess I didn't put it very well - what I meant was the opposite - while it is _possible_, as with the first modern discovery of a coelecanth, that there are other related manuscripts which just haven't surfaced yet, my guess is that the VM is unique, the product of one or more eccentric (or bloody-minded) individuals who made it for reasons unknown.
