Or perhaps it's like the veS/noH dichotomy.  Perhaps {ta'} is the concept of 
emperor.  Thus, {ta' Hol} is the standard dialect because it's what the 
emperor (no matter who he is) speaks.  Then {voDleH} would be a specific 
instance of an emperor (for lack of better phrasing), and thus {voDleH 
Ha'DIbaH} was the way a specific emperor liked his meat.
