I'm aware of KAG and have many times heard those titles; but I am not familiar 
with how they are used.  I never got into that side of fandom.

You didn't notice my extended signature on that e-mail did you?

So, for you:

vIghro' joH, bomwI' tuq.

I tried that with one of the groups I associate with.  They were rewriting 
their books.  I wrote up a formal report on the information in KGT.  They liked 
it; said they would incorporate some of it, if not all of it.  But when the 
Fleet Manual came out they didn't use any of the information.
So I do what you are planning to do; I stick with proper tlhIngan Hol.  I 
haven't a clue what they have listed for me in their records.
