Fred's model doesn't seem to come alive until just
4000 CMOS is spec'd for 3V min. Is there anything
published for what happens below 3V? .... for all
mfrs of 4000 CMOS.

I don't know if this R-idea is viable as a generalised
way of setting the power-up state of a 2-gate bistable.
If it is, then operation over 3-18V would be nice.
