Firstly, a small quibble: regardless of your style of Latin, "in" is pronounced "een". Anything else is just sloppiness.
I can't agree with this. Latin had short and long versions of each vowel a, e, i, o, u: the short "i" in "incola" pronounced like the "i" in "pin"; the long "i" in "insula" pronounced like the "i" in "police". The "i" in "in" should be a short "i" as far as I am concerned.
