Question regarding Naked Eyes Always Something..

Here is an interesting post regarding the two 7" versions of ASTTRM and how to tell the difference from the matrix numbers ... 441&PN=183

So it seems:
The chimes/bells intro came first = original UK 7" (still to date no one has verified this by listening to it) & video version
Jellybean remix = drums version
UK and US LP and 7" releases could contain either version
The Jellybean 12" sounds more like an extended mix of the original UK mix than his own 7" remix
The above and also the fact that the chimes/bells version on Youtube supposedly uses the wrong cover leads people to think Jellybean did the chimes version and the drums version is more common

Is that a fair summary of the facts?

It seems I Ran from A Flock of Seagulls and ASTTRM from Naked Eyes are always a source of confusion in terms of what came first etc
