Next RNs 221-225 are to be Northern-Exposure R,N,B,Q and K in turn. We also have a 300-series of Mutators. Plausible future Mutators include Move-Turn Order, because so far only RN10 has used that idea very minimally. Actually, there is never shortage of material whatsoever. Ralph Betza's work alone suggests 50 or 100 additional Mutators not yet implemented here. Incidentally will #CVs exceed # elementary particles in Universe? Easily only the next 50 or so Mutators achieve that. Theoretical infinity of CVs, totally different concept, would be separate demonstration in mathematical mode.
