Yes, as best I can tell i'(r) is always written with D36 (arm) - and, interestingly, it seems to have been rarely written with D21 (mouth). In addition, and as I've mentioned, "mr" is almost always written with the U23 (chisel) as its first term, and it seems to me that this would especially need to be accounted for in any explanation of the word's derivation.

To make a correction - the Rec. Trav. citation I made in my post yesterday was incorrect - the 12th Dynasty example is in Rec. Trav. 27, p. 222 (my pdf file has volumes 26 and 27 together, which I hadn't then realized). Also, it turns out that this passage is in CT Sp 61 line 257, although that in Sp. 611 is similar. The whole usage of a windows metaphor in these texts is fascinating, and is something I've been looking into for some time. I hadn't realized the apparent connection to pr-m-ws before, though, and so I thank you for beginning a discussion that led to this finding.
