Supersede vs Supercede: a humble proposition

The Merriam Webster authoritatively informs that "supersede" is the only correct spelling, and "Supercede has occurred as a spelling variant of supersede since the 17th century, and it is common in current published writing. It continues, however, to be widely regarded as an error." Fair enough.

I merely propose to adopt "superCede" word with a new semantic load...

'Cedere" means "to yield to, give way for" which could lead to

SUPERCEDE meaning " to give more than asked for"

e.g.

"I supercede the power!"     "I most gladly supercede my responsibility" 🙂
