Sure, why not?

On Facebook recently someone used *taybe'wI'*/someone uncivilized./ But 
I can think of more complicated words. Here's one: 
*HIvqangbe'qa'wI'*/someone unwilling to attack again./

I would hesitate to include any type 1, 6, or 8 suffixes on a *-wI'* 
verb. 1, because I'm not sure about how the reflexive nature of the word 
interacts with *-wI'* (but I'd probably accept something like 
*HIvchuqwI'*/those who attack each other/). 6, because there are 
analogous noun suffixes to do the same thing, except *-chu',* which 
seems more important to a noun's fundamental meaning. 8, because *-neS* 
would be more appropriate on the main verb of the sentence, not tucked 
away inside a noun.
