I am not writing the Silmarillion, which was long ago written; but trying to find a way and order in which to make the legends and annals publishable.
I think it was because there were so many boxes and/or volumes of notes that he hadn't finished reading all of them when he first started to edit The Silmarillion. Thus many changes and additions that his father had in mind to incorporate, were left out because their existance hadn't yet surfaced into Christopher's knowledge.I wonder why it was left out. Did Christopher not read the notes carefully enough or did he think it would take up too much room.
andThe House of Finwë and the Noldorin descent of Elrond and Elros
respectively, so maybe my original thought holds true.The House of Bëor and the mortal descent of Elrond and Elros
