**to have** v.s **to be** a constant structure

the introduction uses to have which I find better to understand, should we decide for a more consistent terminology for the verb?

Construction of Constant Structures

Could some material or resources on -how- to construct these scales be added? It seems to get exponentially harder the more notes you want and the brute force approach isn't getting me anywhere.

I'm particularly interested in CS Scales because they seem to be the best option for bringing Just Intonation to isomorphic keyboards.

I've noticed that when constructing regular scales for certain limits in a way that extends the concept of well-formedness – that is, having no more different scale steps than generating primes, and always breaking up any extraneous scale steps in the same way – Scala always reports them as being constant structures. Could I be on to something here?

Density of CS Scales in EDO's

What is the definition of density?

I guess I was thinking of something akin to this definition, but for scales instead of numbers:

Basically, it is a way to ask the question of "how many CS scales are there compared to non-CS scales?"
