My suggestion on the food linkage front repeats what I was trying to say in Santa Cruz about arboriculture, since the use and cultivation of tree crops looks like a very basic Austronesian / Oceanic practice that is often overlooked when one talks about food systems. While I'm not so sure how Austronesian (as opposed to generic SEA and Oceanic) such practices are, it is again worth noting that the practice of 'sago' making using different species of palm stretches across Wallace's Line and was probably part of a very old repertoire.
