We've definitely seen {-Daq} used on a subject.

TKW page 111:
  Only a fool fights in a burning house.
  meQtaHbogh qachDaq Suv qoH neH.

I haven't decided how to treat it.  Does it mean the subject of the
relative clause is a locative?  Does it just mean the locative of the main
clause is the subject of the relative clause, regardless of the syntactic
marker on the subject itself?
