This makes a great deal of good sense. I would assume that some of the
hypotatic structures in Colossians were probably dictated by Paul and for
this and other reasons (e.g., it is a letter) would be found toward the
spoken end the continuum. On the other hand the narrative portions of Mark
would be found toward the written end of the continuum.

Thanks for your post, it was both lucid and thought provoking.
