Ian, if you're going to cite me please do it accurately.  I said no 
such thing about Psalm 110.  And I dealt in more depth with the 
cave 11 curiosity scroll in another post.  This scroll proves 
absolutely nothing about order, content or canonicity of any psalm 
or group of psalms.  You can flail it about all you want, but it won't 
get you anywhere because this particular scroll is so bizarre that 
nothing solid can be built on it.
