Jim,

The root YTR is in my opinion a variant of the roots (TR, ($R,  
'replete, plenty'.
I hold it a basic tenet of Hebrew etymology that every root  
containing the letter L, such as XBL, refers to a state of elevation  
or extension, and that every root that contains the letter R, such as  
XBR, refers to a state of aggregation or dispersion.
