Werckisma?

Just curious, why is this the werckisma? Does it appear in Werckmeister temperament or something?

It's an interval Werckmeister made use of, or at least that's one way of analyzing it. For concocting temperaments of course. I think it had something to do with 81/80 = 99/98 441/440, and with shaving 441/440 from a fifth giving a good meantone fifth.
