Nice list. I am still not entirely at peace with *manóte, not because it's not logical but because it's too logical, if you get my meaning (but then so is *malume so I haven't got much ground to grumble).
But, *manóte would, supposedly, refer to countables (how many?), so what will 'how much' be? (if there was/is a distinction)
