Since all of the type 5 noun suffixes except -'e' must come before the basic 
sentence, not just locatives must come before the basic sentence, the 
contrived appellation "header" may be just accurate enough.  

But, let's not forget that adverbials may, and so often do, and usually do, 
come before these "headers."  So, if we are going to use this coining, let's 
be sure to explain to students that even "type five noun suffix headers" may 
not head the sentence.

BTW, while Klingon grammar is not English grammar, in English locatives are 
part of the predicate (aka object).  They are neither direct object nor 
indirect object; they are locatives.
