So, whatever else they are, the tokens or words of the VMs behave
statistically like other cases of higher-level coding units and presumably
represent some kind of significant unit.  They are composed of simpler
orthographic units (graphs and glyphs) but they have significance as
divisions between groups of these and are not simply arbitrary window
dressing imposed on the stream of simple orthographic units.

Or maybe what you're actually saying, since you say it rather carefully,
is that word spacing produces units similar in length to the units
implied by spectal analysis, and simplest assumption is that the two sets
of entities are one and the same?
