With a lot of things, we have to accept that the Klingon we speak is really just a model based on the data we have available at the time.

I'd say that unless somebody presents a compelling counter-argument, you can use that for now, and most people will understand what you mean, but it's possible that Maltz will declare it wrong at some later date.

Believe it or not, I thought about this too. I thought about writing:
