Czech Patent # 219,086 - Favorit

Czech Patent 219,086 - Favorit main image

Why is the cable clamp bolt at the (dirty) derailleur and the cable nipple at the (relatively clean) lever? Otto Šaman of Favorit proposes in this patent that this arrangement should be reversed. I have never seen an manifestation of his idea on a Favorit derailleur - but it is used on the Walter derailleur in this collection.
