But as we all know, Okrand doesn't much care about spaces, and Klingon
is a spoken language. ;-)

I agree with what you wrote, and suggest for all clearness to say
something like tera' DabwI' or so, to make the difference very clear.

By the way, I always found it strange that in DSC, they talked about the
mirror universe people from the "Terran Empire" as Terrans - because we
are Terrans too, so the difference is not clear, and it was even more
difficult to translate that into the Klingon subtitles.
