It's funny that you say that, because the sense I got from that
interview (?) with Okrand is that -ghach is ubiquitous and ends up on
all kinds of words. Not some (e.g., bare stems), but a whole lot. I
hardly think saying "don't use it unless you know what you are doing"
is the message that Okrand is conveying there...
