Right, but my problem is that article 1589 differs from 965 (the one your quoted) in situations where there is a testate succession and the successor renounces his legacy, creating a lapsed legacy. Under 965 you treat him as if he's predeceased in that situation (again, as you pointed out). But under 1589 the legacy accretes to the person who would have inherited if the legacy had never been given. The problem comes up because at some point you have to treat a testamentary succession with intestate rules.
