*ja'chuqwI'* isn't a verb, it's a noun. A noun does not have subjects. 
You have to think of it this way: if it were a verb, it would have a 
plural subject, but it's been turned into a noun, so those plural 
subjects are only conceptual.

One would be perfectly justified in declaring a word like this iffy and 
complex and in deciding not to use it. But it seems quite sensible to me.
