1) The flavor symmetry of the sBootstrap, if gauged, could be the Sumino family symmetry that protects the Koide relations.

Been speculative, I wonder if a gauge of the SU(5) should produce something as SO(2^5). It is known that the gauge group in string theory comes from half the number of dimensions (so SO(8192) is a relevant group for the bosonic string), and Bailin and Love shown, or hinted, that this number can be also related to a Chan Paton charge for fermions in the 1+1 surface.
