I know of at least one exception to the claim that 'whoever comes up with 
what they use is not knowledgable about the language'.  The Warrior's Anthem 
was actually written by MO (well, translated from an English original by 
him).  However, it is true that the producers of DS9 did not consult MO, but 
rather lifted the song wholesale from the Star Trek: Klingon CD.  (This info 
was gleaned from the KLI FAQ.)
