Agreed. That’s what {maleghchuq} and {malegh’egh} do for us, plus they distinguish between us facing each other vs. the two or more of us facing the same mirror, large enough to see all of us in the mirror, and neither {-chuq} or {-‘egh} tells us how many people (some undefined number more than one) are seeing or being seen.
