I apologize, you are right. But man, that is a awfully clumsy sentence. Way too many clauses.

I love clauses; the more, the merrier -- and for that I apologize to no one.

I would like to politely and constructively suggest to refrain from such elaborate sentence construction. Many of your readers are not native speakers and will have trouble grokking what you are trying to say. I myself had to reread the sentence although I think I can claim with some confidence that, for a non-native speaker, I have an above-average command of the English language.

Wow, now I realize what this weird "respectively" meant!

I do not think that the use of English makes much difference; this sentence is just too convoluted (in any language).

Otherwise a very interesting summary.
