I didn't notice anything wrong with {HoS}, but now that you suggest it
I do think {rotlh} is better.

I wouldn't call an access panel a {lo' law' lojmIt}. It has basically
one purpose. I think of a "utility hatch" as something which opens to
permit the passage of cargo, passengers, fuel lines, electrical
cables, etc. For the kind of access panel I'm imagining, I'd call it a
{lojmItHom}.

<lojmIt qoD> vImaSHa'. If there were a word meaning "area on the other
side of", I'd use it.
