Just a short comment: most of the examples don't have a double S, but
only a single one. So I guess they're not relevant. However your first case
* Masse and Maße (mass and measurements) as well as
* Rußen and Russen (sooting and Russians)
would be two examples.
I will now catch up with the other topics and talk to you all this Thursday.
