[1] As with the previous chapter, the abbreviation does not make clear which of several ways an elaboration according to SN 5.45.92 — 102 should be made for the cattāro iddhipāde. It could be that the addition of
"vivekanissitaɱ, virāganissitaɱ, nirodhanissitaɱ, vossaggapariṇāmiɱ or
"rāgavinayapariyosānaɱ, dosavinayapariyosānaɱ, mohavinayapariyosānaɱ" or
amatogadhaɱ, amataparāyaṇaɱ, amatapariyosānaɱ or
nibbānaninnaɱ nibbānapoṇaɱ nibbānapabbhāraɱ or all of the above, was intended to be placed after each of the four developments of the cattāro iddhipāde, or
that each of the four developments of the Iddhipada was to be folowed by each of the steps of the Magga plus each of these four modifications, or
that each of the suttas we have here was to have been developed according to the scheme in SN 5.45, which gives four suttas for each single sutta here. The sutta numbering suggests the arrangement I have made above.

[2] Here SN 5.45.92 — 102 has: Yathā esanā evaɱ vitthāretabbā. Expand in full according to the 'esanā' series which gives 4 versions of this sutta, one each for abhiññāya, pariññāya, parikkhayāya, pahānāya. So this manages to complicate the issue discussed in note 1 by four. In this section we are being asked to expand in accordance with a scheme that has no relation to this subject matter and which itself is to be expanded in a way which if applied here could turn this one sutta into 16 different suttas! — And in the Sri Lanka Buddha Jayanti Tripitaka Series Pali Magga Samyutta that is exactly what they have there! I have just done what makes good sense to me and seems to follow the numbering scheme.
Anyone concerned about the statement that there are 84,000 suttas in the Sutta Pitaka should find this comforting. I once counted, and without this complication, using just the numbering scheme as it appears here and in the index, came up with 84,000 easy.
