Well, consider it a self-fulfilling prophecy: If Marc Okrand has specified something, then it's bound to end up on boQwI'. If boQwI' cites Marc Okrand, then boQwI' is accurate.

I had forwarded your questions on {ngIq}, and here is Okrand's answer. Basically, your assumptions were right, but it's good to have this clarified.

(The description of {ngIq} in boQwI' is pretty good.)

Well, this is awkward. I want to edit this entry to include the new information, but if I do, then it won't be the text that Marc Okrand referred to any more.

For posterity, here is what it currently says:
"This noun indicates that a single thing is being considered apart from others, or that a sequence of identical things is considered one after another. Like {Hoch} and {'op}, it precedes what it modifies."

(The printed qepHom booklet actually includes a screenshot of this text next to Okrand's reference to it, so it's preserved there as well.)
