It says in the introduction explicitly (and in the part Marc did write, IIRC, though someone with the paq'batlh to hand should check me on that) that - apart from the no' Hol in the intro, of course - the Klingon rendition was done using contemporary language. As such, I have no problem leaving the slang use of QaD as it is. As for the petaQ footnote, any revision (if it's not outright deleted) should note that it's at most a tentative hypothesis proposed by the editor, not the translator.

(On a purely selfish note: would it be out of place for me to ask you to include that my name be updated in the acknowledgments in Marc's intro? Naturally I hadn't come out when paq'batlh was published, but it'd be nice to be able to get that revised if other revisions are going to be made.)
