I don't think the extra part of the note is needed.

A Consideration that occurred when editing the entry for させる, using -nai stem for the usage note in this verb will most likely lead the reader to incorrectly believe that it connects to する as しぬ, rather than せぬ.
Perhaps the term -nai stem for this entry should be replaced with 未然形, though that makes it ambiguous as 五段 have お and あ and サ変 have さ、し、せ and arguably しょ.
Maybe changing it to "after せ~ form of suru class verbs or -nai stem of other verbs; negates verbs in non-past tense" would address the issue?

daijs, daijr
Removing 2 as it should be its own entry: they have different meanings, conjugation paradigms and etymologies; added note to better describe function.

Questioning: Is the suffix tag on auxiliaries that formally connect a to verb stem and are never added after nouns/nominals necessary? 
Looking at the definition for 接尾語 in daijs,  meikyo and daijr, the defining characteristic of a 接尾語 seems to be whether or not they can be attached directly to 体言 or things applicable to them(such as the root of an adjective or adjectival verb). 
For example, the 助動詞 らしい is listed as connecting to the 終止形 of adjectives and verbs as well as to 体言 in both daijs and daijr, but the らしい registered as a 接尾語 says only「名詞・副詞,または形容動詞の語幹などに付いて...」(Note: quote is from daijr which does not nominally cite adjective roots but daijs does).
It is possible that a revision for the criteria for the suffix tag is in order.

removing superfluous xref (rather than fixing it - it should 
be [3] if my edit to ん goes through)
