 I'd say the <> phrase is a direct quote, even in a {-meH}clause. Thus the no
 object prefix, in this case the null prefix is required. >>
Then, there remains the question of what is the head noun of the {-meH} 
clause.  It appears obvious to me in this sentence the head noun of the 
clause is {mIwmey}, which is plural.
