5L 7s is the MOS pattern of the Pythagorean/schismic chromatic scale, and also the superpyth chromatic scale. In contrast to the meantone chromatic scale, in which the diatonic semitone is larger than the chromatic semitone, here the reverse is true: the diatonic semitone is smaller than the chromatic semitone, so the diatonic scale subset is actually improper.

The two distinct harmonic entropy minima with this MOS pattern are, on the one hand, scales very close to Pythagorean such that 64/63 is not tempered out, such as the schismatic temperaments known as Helmholtz and Garibaldi, and on the other hand, the much simpler and less accurate scale known as superpyth in which 64/63 is tempered out.

The Pythagorean/schismatic version is proper, but the superpyth version is improper (it does not become proper until you add 5 more notes to form the superpyth enharmonic scale, superpyth[17]).
