I'm not sure what Lieven means by "tool" since a {rojHom} isn't a tool.
There are plenty of purpose clauses modifying nouns which aren't tools.

Very often, there are two ways to interpet such constructions, for instance

*Dochvetlh DIlmeH Huch 'ar DaneH*

I'm sure this is not {DIlmeH Huch} but a separate phrase {Dochvetlh DIlmeH}
+ {Huch 'ar DaneH}

Really? I think this is {[Dochvetlh DIlmeH Huch] 'ar DaneH?} and not
*{Dochvetlh DIlmeH, Huch 'ar DaneH?}, because in the latter case, I'd
expect {Dochvetlh vIDIlmeH, Huch 'ar DaneH?}
