INDENTURING ?

IF INDENTURING=1 then ??????ATION is proved
INDENTATION=6 and INDENT_____ is common. The ______ATION makes up the 5 point difference.

Even though strictly speaking JDave was wrong, because 'indenturing' scored 2, I feel that in the spirit of the game he gets the points because his logic was sound and the '1' was probably a typo. JDave - please correct the score in your game if I'm wrong.
CELEBRATION
SOMERSAULTS - 2 	OBSTRUCTION - 4 	INSTRUCTORS - 1 
DRAGONFLIES - 1 	INSTRUCTION - 4 	DEMARCATION - 6 
INTERESTING - 3 	UTILIZATION - 5 	SUBDIVISION - 3 
INVESTMENTS - 1 	CONTROVERSY - 1 	INDENTATION - 6 
INVENTORIES - 2 	INSTRUCTING - 2 	INDENTURING - 2 

Score Changes: Shadow7 +15, JDave +20, WbB 0 (just testing)
Spoiler for Score Update (so the format can be copied)

To clarify scoring: Note that this thread awards proofs and the word completion separately (word completion does not count as a proof of all letters). Shadow7 proved 3 letters, JDave proved 2 letters, then JDave got the complete word.

Not sure that my initial thought of 11 being too long was right or not - we got there in the end.

WombatBreath you are a gentleman. I picked indentation/indenturing to swap out the ation but forgot about the common 'I' when I went to type it in. My logic was sound but I miscounted. I'll take 5 points for the logic and amend my score to 15.

So this is variable length, huh? How about 8 letters since that hasn't been done yet.
