I don't see any problem with this.

I can only think of one canonical example of *-meH* on a question, and 
it's a lousy example. *qIpmeH Qatlh'a'*/difficult to hit?/ (ST5) It's a 
bad example because it's talking about being difficult for the purpose 
of hitting, which is not really the purpose of being difficult.
