Nice list.  But is a fairytale comma (1001/1000) and a few others some sort of copyright trap or something ?  Can’t see any musical validity to it :-)

Agreed! I've never liked the Mostek 50240 et-al.

As a connoisseur of microtonal, just, and other tunings from around the world I've designed and built my own MIDI to CV interfaces to allow mapping any tuning desired.

Let just drop that a Mercator's comma below unison ;)

Yes !   Those equal temperament (which weren’t quite anyway !) Mostek and GI organ chips of the 1970s/80s that people tried to use in electronic pianos were an abomination.

We once had to call the piano tuner back when Gary Brooker did a sound check on our baby grand and said it was out of tune.  Whiter Shade of Pale (and some other PH songs) needed a rather extreme stretch tuning.
But he still moaned the whole show about having to play on this ‘toy piano’.

Apart from anyone with a real piano !   Programming in the Railsback curve is well worth the effort.

Also a Fender Rhodes (and probably any other electric piano):
