Though this paper does not directly address MOND, its results are qualitatively compatible: lensing mass aligned with the spiral disk and a very flattened apparent mass distribution. Just what flattening one would infer for a Newtonian interpretation of a MONDian phenomenon depends rather sensitively on the specifics of a system and how it is observed (see Milgrom (2001) [120]). That the disk apparently has a higher M*/L than the bulge might also be expected since bulges tend to be in the Newtonian regime, but disks in the modified regime where their apparent mass will get a boost.
