If the delta V were expressed as components (ie crosstrack, alongtrack
and radial) then it should be possible to calculate the new elset.

In other words anyone have the leverage to tease the extra info out of
any source?

We (ie Bart and I) have developed a methodology and software for keeping
these and other elsets up-todate on the WWW pages. Still ironing out
bugs so any claim that it can be a useful source is premature. Hopefully
it will work before it's redundant. ;-)
