The "sometimes" might better be "originally".
As for ん, that's already a headword in 2139720, where sense 3 says "abbr. of particle "no"". So searching for it gets you to the right place. The entry for の is complicated enough already, and we've split 乃/之 to declutter it. I think keeping ん apart too is appropriate.

shouldn't "ん" be a headword/reading? rather than just a note?
"sometimes written 乃 or 之" should maybe be rephrased too 
(it's not the case of "sometimes" as much as it's the case of 
"back in the good ol' days")

We probably need to regularize whether these "sentence end" annotations go at the start of end of the gloss. At present they are all over the place.

* Move “at sentence-end” into text, instead of [note], since Latin characters
* Add “at sentence-end” to [4] “confident conclusion”
* Add notes on tone (rising, falling)
