# The aforementioned ones are 4 apart (T->W, A->D).  Also applies do K->N in DK1 and Q->T in QIY.  J->P and L->R in PRESIDENT are 7 apart.
 
# If you flip around DK1 you get 1KD and if you let 1=A then AKD.  K transforms to N somehow.  And for S9, flipping you get 9S.  9=I.
 
# FOO IS BAR is a standard way of writing cryptogram codes.  Doing this for ABOUTTURN/TURNABOUT, U maps to N,O and T maps to A,B.  Maybe each successive instance of a letter increments its place in the table by one.
