That's what I was pointing out.  Things like languages don't have an actual location.  I was also
pointing out that -Daq and -vo' don't need "motion", as in those other examples where there were
still a physical presence/location involved.  I pointed that out because early in the thread someone
implied a restriction to "physical movement".
