Also, technically speaking, the rule is that you can't put a type 5 
suffix on the first noun of the noun-noun construction, not that the 
first noun can't be locative. I have no idea whether one of the 
inherently locative nouns are allowed to be the first noun, but it 
doesn't break any stated rule we have.
