Re(2): Listener No. 4385: PD by Dragon

I can't say I am all that keen on PD type clues but you do have to admire clues like that for SOUTHERLINESS.
I can see that the normal pattern is for the omission to be within a word, and that applied to all the PD clues here, but is it 'compulsory.' If not, in 11 across you could have had his AGATE sculpture, or his sculpture, A MATE, gain... Both of these make 'some sort of sense' though clearly gALATEa makes most sense, in terms of a clue about Pygmalion.
