I haven't been following the thread terribly closely, but it seems to me a
lot of red herrings are being chased.
Maybe this has been pointed out and I missed it, but isn't the question
ultimately about what APO KATABOLHS KOSMOU modifies? Is everyone assuming it
modifies GEGRAPTAI rather than KATOIKOUNTES?
The negative seems to counter indicate GEGRAPTAI (mind you, the grammar is
quite strange in 13:8 at least).
