What he was asked about was one locative modifying another.  They can't.
TKD p. 31 says you can't do this (you can't have a Type 5 noun suffix on the
first noun of a noun-noun construction).

/juHDaq quSDaq jIba'/ is correct because these nouns are in the "header" of
the sentence, not because they modify each other (which they don't).
