Listener 4411 Extra English by Raffles

I am in two minds about this. We found it enjoyable to complete, with a satisfying PDM and clever multiple possibilities for 7d and 30d.

However... this could be our first fail of the year because of what I feel is an ambiguity in the replacement of LIMEY. We put ELIEL, which is "An angel invoked in ritual magic" according to the Dictionary of Angels. Seabeet is wild beet and Alm is a river in Austria. Proper nouns have often been acceptable entries in The Listener (as in the first unclued entry - Raphael).

What do others think about this?
