Former TWHS

I wonder if we have treated this "category" of sites entirely consistently

E.g "The Ruins of Jiaohe Ancient City" doesn't appear in China's "Former TWHS" list because it is regarded as having been subsumed within the greater "Silk Road" inscription
BUT "Burana Minaret" appears in Kyrgyzstan's list of "Former TWHS" even though it too has been fully included within the Silk Road inscription
Is this because China did at least "try" to gain an inscription for Jiaohe alone whilst Kyryzstan never attempted with Burana? If so I am not sure the logic holds

Similarly "Spoleto and Tempietto sul Clitunno" appears on Italy's list of "Former TWHS" even though the "Tempietto sul Clitunno" element was included in the Langobards inscription. The "History" of that WHS refers to Clitunno being added but the entry in the "Former TWHS list doesn't mention that the Clitunno element got inscribed (By the way Els - Spoleto of course as such didn't get inscribed even though the WHS description for the Langobards implies that it did "in full"! Presumably it only refers to the Basilica of San Salvatore in Spoleto)
There may be others??

That Burana Minaret is still included in the former TWHS although subsumed is a mistake.

The reason Spoleto and Tempietto sul Clitunno is still there is, as Solivagant duly noticed, that not all of Spoleto has been inscribed. Maybe it would be helpful to have an attached comment about the inscription of a part of it. Examples of similar cases are relatively common:
prehistoric sites (Israel), prehistoric sites (Cyprus), Olomouc (Czechia), Kezmarok (Slovakia), Cefalu (Italy), Cividale (Italy), Gargano (Italy), Piedmont vineyards with Valtellina (Italy), Palermo with botanic garden (Italy), Thessaloniki including ancient monuments (Greece), Athens (Greece) Franciscan monasteries of NE Brasil (Brasil), Malpelo and Gorgona (Colombia), Isfahan (Iran), Oaxaca with Cuilapan (Mexico), Puebla with Cholula (Mexico), Nan Madol with Lelu (Micronesia) and Pecs (Hungary).
I am pretty sure I missed some.
