aside from abbreviated endings, some letters were intentionally

It's certainly possible: though the VMs' small working alphabet (whether
fake or not :-) ) makes it less likely that nulls are present there. For
example, a good number of the more complex Tranchedino ciphers have
upwards of 100 symbols - plenty of room for nulls there.
Nulls were not considered in what I have described. The working
assumption was that there were none.
Brian's script finds none in the file I am using. It lowers the
confidence level for an ordered string of VMS trigrams -- end to end; I
made no attempt to re-overlap them.
