Going by Okrand's pronunciation and a complete lack of any canonical
counterexamples anywhere, I believe you are correct.
(I can think of a non-canonical counterexample. In TNG's "Since of the
Father," the characters consistently give stress to the second syllable
of *cha'DIch.* They also pronounce it more like /cha-DEESH/.)
