Thank you, Prof. Lee, for this information.
I have one trivial question that relates to my original query.

Is there a place where Yi is systematically prescribed? This is not
meant as a challenge. As I mentioned, since I am compiling a
dictionary in which I am trying to be in line with RR, if I render
things in ways that are not clearly indicated in the official
guidelines, I want to be able to document the reasons. If you can't
think of a place where Yi is systematically prescribed, that's OK--I
just want to know the actuality, as much as is possible.
