Dear Michael,
I do not think your theory is reasonable.  An introductory word at the beginning of a
scroll is understandable, but the concluding repetition would be unnecessary.  Also,
the content of ten verses is not long enough to fill a scroll.
I am not and expert on scrolls, so I will concede that the practice of inclusio was
done if you will point me to some examples from extant scrolls.
Thank you,
