The real problem is: Does your imputation model support -mvrs-
or -mfp-? The imputation should be at least as flexible as
the final model of interest. So you don't have to use -mvrs-
or -mfp- in your imputation model, but then the used model
should be more flexible than either.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
