 This is pretty much a dead-end based on the other comments on this list,
 but in general, no, most of these tones are *not* single-frequency simple
 tones. ANSam, for example, is a single frequency, but is amplitude
 modulated. There are also variants that have phase reversals, and these
 must be preserved for them to be discriminated from the non-phase-reversal
 versions.
