vaj qachuH: SuStel's reading of TKD (if I understand it at all) allows
nouns to take Type 5 suffixes wherever they occur in a sentence, provided
the results are "meaningful." TKD's rule prohibiting the first noun in a
noun-noun construction from taking a Type 5 suffix seems an irregularity
here - a case in which grammar is not indifferent to the deployment of Type
5 suffixes. As the attraction of SuStel's view is largely in its
universality, and since you were counting exceptions, I thought ...

jaS vImugh 'e' vImaS: "When a person acts, what brings honor is the fact
that he does it for his house." But that's beside the point. I had two
motives for making my examples as persuasive as possible:

1) to show that the far-reaching implications of SuStel's theory won't
always be ruled out by the "meaningfulness" criterion;

2) to test whether the supporters of this view are really prepared to see
such phrases coming up casually in posts.
