Last is just a wild speculation without any basis. The Shasu might well be 
the biblical Sinaite Susim. There is however not a single argument to put 
together the Susim with the Levites.
Furthermore could the Yhw in Shasu Yhw be anything else as the biblical 
Yahweh, but rather an Egyptian toponym, or a further ethnonym.

So it makes no sense to discuss the consequences you derive from your first 
supposition.
