What do we know about the kata Saifa?

I'm trying my hand at Saifa now, I have a pretty good idea about the flow of the kata but some details are puzzling me.

When I was going about Gekisay, it helped to understand how they come to be and the intention behind it, but I'm finding some strange and very superficial info about Saifa.

Despite being a "modern" kata, we don't know who created it? And it maybe Miyagi's attempt at another kata, since only his lineage of Nahate practices it, is that right???

I'm also finding it terribly consistent around schools, having some minor but very interesting differences in the Shorin-kan school.

I hope I can share some of my ideas with you in the near future   o/
