(In reply to re(5): Most of a solution ---- hint , .....partial. spoiler by broll)

"each a part of one of 10 words, belonging to a well defined set.

The set is names of  William Shakespeare's  plays .-

The last two examples IMHO contradict  NOTHING-, the more the merrier-  finding two examples, both in the set makes your solution better, not worse.
 Bear in mind that you found both titles after my hint, prior to it you found none.

Your current solution is almost  perfect - I say "almost" because:

1. You tried to establish a "rule within a rule" as to where  in the
word the triplet is located, - not applicable to all ten triplets and not requested.

2, You did not  explicitly comment on the set's origin, as requested.

Still (back to the Bard):   All's well that ends well! <p>
