I see that SuStel already touched on what I was planning on mentioning as I worked my way through
the thread, but I figured I would still chime in and add another voice to the point...

You can still think of ghoS as associated with a path/course.  The confusion here is that there are
two paths involved.  The {Hevo'} mentioned could be more appropriately put as {HewIjvo'}.  Even in
English sometimes people say "Get out of the way" instead of "Get out of my way".  The other person
still has their own path/course on which they ghoS; you are basically telling them to alter their
course to avoid a collision.  And in canon we see that one can ghoS a new course.
