Isn’t that inconsistent with the TNG episode “Heart of Glory”, in which the bodies of two Klingons who “died well” (in a battle with the Worf) are referred to as simply empty shells? IIRC (the Wikipedia article doesn’t seem to discuss this) the Enterprise crew are told by the Klingon commander to simply dispose of the bodies by the most efficient means possible.
