676/675, otherwise known as the island comma, or the parizeksma, is the difference between two 15/13's and a 4/3 perfect fourth, and also between 26/25 and 27/26. Tempering this comma out divides the perfect fourth into two equal halves, making island chords possible.
Etymology
The name island comma was given by Mike Battaglia in 2011^{[1]}.
The 9-note MOS sounds like you're on some kind of tropical island off the coast of Barbados playing jubilant sun-music with the natives or something. More specifically, I feel like it takes the "island" feel of 5-equal and expands it out into diatonic and chromatic versions.
