My study is very limited to conclude that commentators haven't touched upon
the topic. And since you use a plural, it would extend to vyAkhyAs and
TIkAs, which is a massive collection. Further, my valid source of knowledge
extends with asmadAchAryaparyantA paramparA upto and including my Acharya,
in which Vidyaranyacharya's JMV already stated more than once in this
thread is definitely a part, which also quotes Yogavasishtha and its
saptabhUmikA. I am quite convinced of my conclusions with these sources;
none of it is my independent baseless thinking.
