Isn't the issue that Lombard is evidently comparatively close to standard Italian, and Arpitan to standard French compared to how close Rumantsch is to Italian (presuming one accepts it is closer to Italian than French?). Can you understand Rumantsch as an Italian and French speaker Tom?
Depends on WHICH Rumantsch, Surselvian has a lot of similarities with railroad-dialect.

Also, Rumantsch is one of the three Swiss languages that I actually studied (Italian is the one that I have never studied).
