I can't speak for Sean, but I believe he's suggesting that Klingons think of 
{ghojmoH} as one word, not ghoj + -moH.  I've wondered about this too, 
especially as it ties in to the debate that's been going on about how to 
think of -moH in a holistic way.  It might depend on the person.  
"Maintenance" is one word, with its own dictionary entry, but you can think 
of it as "maintain + -ance".

In a Klingon dictionary for Klingons, would ghojmoH have its own entry?  No 
one knows.
