Since *-um > *-uw > *-u > -U in Slavic
(the lack of nasalization is the important
part) it's completely possible that *um >
U in other environments (not before b/p
but before t, apparently).
The only other rule needed (which has
a parallel in *i>*u in some pal. envir-
onments) is im>um/_[*P] or similar. An
earlier similar change is ing>ung as in
Germanic *hringaz vs. OCS kroNgU.
