     I'm not sure about the number, but I just listened to it yesterday and
noted that in the section on numbers used with plural nouns, Okrand
definitely used {lI'be'} adjectivally, so not only do you have evidence that
some, if not all, verbs can use {-be'} adjectivally, but {lI'} specifically
can be used this way.
