You could well be right Gustav.

I have also seen what you refer to, and by using a high ada-ada it is possible to give that impression of pamor miring.

I have not encountered the use of the name "aiq ngelek" in Bali, I have come across it for the first time in this thread, I possibly did see your old post, but I'd forgotten it. In any case, made as a mlumah pamor, it is seemingly done by blade contour, made in the forge it done as I explained, & the end result of each method looks pretty similar.

As far as names go, in Javanese keris the pamor "Banyu Mili" has the meaning "Flowing Water", which one might think makes it the same as "Aiq Ngelek" & "Ilining Warih", but Banyu Mili is most definitely a pamor miring of the adeg type, no traces of random wos wutah at all.

That keris I posted pics of would have been Banyu Mili if it had been forged out with protective plates.
