Simple: Markedness shows that Khoisan clicks are
EXCEEDINGLY RARE, _not_ non-existent.

Since Khoisan clicks are a REALITY, not a theory, we
must accept this rarity as a fact. Markedness is
not contradicted by this fact. Pay attention.

IE is not a 'fact' but an ongoing theory. Since a
theory can never be accepted as absolute fact, it
must be _changed_ to suit reality because reality
cannot be changed to suit schizophrenia.
