De'vID, thanks for transcribing this.

I noticed another interesting use of {Do} "velocity": 

vuvDI' Bell X-wa', DoDaj vItlh law' wab Do vItlh puS. 
 Do patlhvam chavta'bogh muD Duj wa'DIch moj 'oH.
the Bell X-1 became the first airplane to fly faster
 than the speed of sound

Do patlh vItlhqu' chavta'.  qaStaHvIS wa' rep, vaghvatlh
 javmaH loS qelI'qam lenglaH, wabDo wa' vI' pagh jav. 
He reached a speed of 1127 kilometers per hour (700 miles per hour),
 or Mach 1.06 at an altitude of 13,000 meters (43,000 feet).

While the difference between {wab Do} "the speed of sound" vs. {wabDo} "Mach (factor)" - similar to {gho'Do} "sublight (speed)" and {qughDo} "cruising speed" - has already been remarked upon last month, I just now noticed 
Okrand used {DoDaj} "it's velocity" in the comparison:

  DoDaj vItlh law' wab Do vItlh puS

but {Do patlh} "velocity level" for a specific speed (twice):

  Do patlhvam chavta'bogh muD Duj wa'DIch

  Do patlh vItlhqu' chavta'  

and again in the paragraph on the X-15:

  Do patlhvam 'Iv patlhvam je chavta'bogh telmey ghajbogh
   muD Duj wa'DIch 'oH.
