Yes, that was clear. What you are describing is a mono-labial (I believe that is the right word) version of <b> which is bi-labial (that means two lips). I actually use that same sound in one of my languages (but I can't recall which one). Another example of a mono-labial vowel is /f/ which is actually articulated with the lower lip against the upper teeth (labio-dental, technically).
Woooords! Hehe... :D I'll remember that vocabulary, it makes it a lot easier to talk about phonetics.

OK, so it's a glottal fricative. Very difficult to learn to pronounce (at least for me)
Yeah. :P It took awhile practicing to do it easily, and I still don't do it easily when it's stuck in Rwano consonant clusters.

Your sound system seems to be very well thought out.
