Oh come on. Don't overcomplicate things. If both ranges are filled up
reasonably well, treat them as continuous and run the whole thing as
-ivregress-. Otherwise, you'd be running into problems with a HUGE
number of ancillary parameters (thresholds) that would be difficult to
identify, especially on the extreme ends, where you may have less than
a handful of observations.
