For me, using the MGE-trained model with the current implementation of GV in HMGenS sounds wrong, as there is a severe mismatch in their objective functions:

MGE: minimize \sum_n (c_n - ^c_n(q, \lambda))^2 w.r.t. \lambda

GV: maximize \log N(Wc; \mu_q, \Sigma_q) + \alpha \log N(v(c); \mu_gv, \Sigma_gv) w.r.t. c

The MGE-trained model will not give proper N(Wc; \mu_q, \Sigma_q) as its parameters are stimated so as to minimize the Euclidean distance rather than likelihood.
