This is pretty much how I feel as well. It allows for the following
scene: Two klingons are searching for their captain, who failed to
return from a routine survey mission. They come upon a corpse in Klingon
uniform, but the individual is not immediately identifiable (why? I
don't know, let's say he's been decapitated with a betleH and his killer
took the head as a trophy). Anyway, you get: 

tlhIngan wa'DIch: HoDma' wISam'a'?

tlhIngan cha'DIch: ghobe'. HoDmaj wISam neH.

Which, I happen to think is particularly nifty.
