But then you wouldn't be able to tell between {-qH-} and {-Q-} in the
middle of a word. For instance, {baqHa'} "unterminate, undiscontinue" and
{baQa'} (an invective), would both be written as BAQHA'. There are already
existing systems for rendering Klingon orthography in single character
monocases (usually for ease of lookup in a dictionary, or for making pIqaD
fonts). Those just use a "k" for either q or Q.
