This is a good point.

Of course, I suspect we're not going to be snobs about the suffixes, and can simply suggest that is the standard "skipping suffix" for anyone who can't handle all four. That is:

s:1th/pattern/string/; s:2th/pattern/string/; s:3th/pattern/string/; s:4th/pattern/string/; # etc.

would be perfectly valid.

Alternatively, the rule might be that any suffix other than ...x means repetition:

s:1um/pattern/string/; s:2ieme/pattern/string/; s:3itter/pattern/string/; s:4issimo/pattern/string/; # etc.
