What if the system is non-recursive (with feedback loops) and with multiple equations, e.g.,

y = x1 + x2 + z
x1 = m1 + m2 + x2 + z
x2 = n1 + n2 + x1 + z
m1 = q1 + q2 + z
m2 = p1 + p2 + z

Here one would need reg3, but how would one ensure consistency of standard errors (in the presence of heteroskedasticity), apart from bootstrapping (and Roodman's -cmp- would not here as it is only for recursive systems)?

How would one deal with systems of equations (i.e., reg3) and concurrently have heteroskedastic-robust standard errors? Would bootstrapping with reg3 just be the simplest solution?

In the absence of cross-equation constraints, just estimate each equation with single-equation methods, i.e. -ivregress- or -ivreg2- using robust or cluster-robust VCE. Nothing is lost in doing so beyond a possible gain in efficiency.
