I don't think I'm answering the original question asked, but I love the aux.
Eb/Ab key on my Selmer 9* set, bought in 1961. I ordered it specifically,
along with the articulated C#/G# key. I can't imagine having them removed.
When I play a clarinet that doesn't have them, I'm always reaching for the
"extra" keys. I started, of course, on student cls that didn't have them,
but adapted to the extras very quickly.
