All letters are brothers, good Rapaire. The First Vowel who speaks for Deus Alphabeticus himself has pronounced this as the First Lesson. In His Heart, there is even room for the unlettered (shudder) and the un-alphabetized.
But, within this generous and benevolent love, the True Alphabet is first among equals, and those letters are more brothers than the ones you mention.
As for vowel movements, of course there have been many throughout the glorious History of the Church. The Elder's Wisdom in this regard is to accept vowel movements as part of life, but not to foment or particularly encourage them. The Elder's guidance in this respect is, if you must make vowel movements, do so in private.
In this respect there is a common wisdom between The Church of the Alphabet and that of the Christians.
