No, I mean that the object /'e'/ seems to be the most obvious common choice
for an object of this verb.  I do not claim that this object must be used
exclusively.  I also do not claim the converse.

Possibly, but we have no evidence either way.  /bInajtaHvIS qeylIS
Daghomjaj/ avoids (probably intentionally) the problem altogether.
