I should point out that *nomHa' might still be valid -- "not quickly" is
not necessarily the same as "slowly".  It might mean something between
the opposite cases, which gives some control over specificness.

Even here, you can have levels of emphasis with *bongHa' or *chIchHa'
that the two extremes don't give you.

In general, I'd say we can't rule these out yet, though of course we have
no canonical reason to use them either.
