HQ1 p. 158 is the first source that comes to mind. Actually it says "most" liturgists, and doesn't specifically mention the Rokari, but I'd imagine they're unlikely to be an exception on something like this. (I might be wrong, or it might be that you didn't even write this bit, of course). And it does, on re-reading it, add the qualification that liturgists are not necessarily clergy.

Absolutely. It seems we are in agreement about the facts (if not the terminology) after all!
