You will have to use the core words of Elite, they're the only ones that
remain constant through various implementations of the game.

I believe some reverse engineering to root out the ones whose names are
hardcoded would give us some 5 or 6 names.

Well, I can run the original binaries for the MSX, and I think I have
the original ones for ZX-Spectrum and Elite+ for the PC somewhere.

There are two copyright holders for the original Elite Game. You want to
contact the one who did NOT work in Elite Frontier.  I exchanged some emails
with him a few years ago.  He has an www page where you can find binaries of
the game and lots of nice Elite memories...
