For the verbs of motion, the object IS a locative.  I see no reason to
assume that Okrand meant those three words don't take /-Daq/ unless they're
the object.  Surely he didn't mean that: he hadn't thought of the verb of
motion thing yet.

/naDev/, /pa'/, and /Dat/ contain an implied /-Daq/.  They don't contain an
implied /-vo'/.
