FWIW, the boQwI' entry for {qID} Tags it as v:t and not v:t_c. The latter would indicate that the classification as transitive has been confirmed by canon.

I’ve always taken the boQwI' transitivity tags which aren’t confirmed with a grain of salt. Is there value to tagging verb entries with conjectured transitivity as opposed to just leaving the conjecture up to the user?
