I do not want to suggest that compounds did not have secondary stress in OE; the typological evidence within the modern Germanic languages is too strong for that to be even a distant hypothesis. I am only raising questions about metrical evidence. Matches are informative, but mismatches happen, even in a relatively open-ended, non-isochronous verse system. This suggests that matching constraints are violable and hierarchical; the requirement that a non-ictus be filled by an unstressed syllable is ranked below the four position constraint for OE verse, and below a stress alternation constraint.
