Is the necessity for the preceptor to be a Therevadin Bhukkuni, or would a Bhukkuni from another tradition qualify?
Does the vinaya specify that the Bhukkuni must be from the same tradition?
Do Therevadins not recognise Bukkhunis from other traditions as Bhikkunis?
Sorry to ask so many questions.
A bhikkhuni is a bhikkhuni etc, but the different vinaya lines are not all the same in the amount of rules they follow so this would or could cause problems in sanghakamma (that is to my knowledge anyway quite happy to be proven wrong).
