Technically, there's nothing explicit yet saying that {QamvIS Hegh} is
wrong because of the placement of a {-vIS} verb before a part of a law'/puS
clause (unless SuStel has some insider info). But that grammar has never
been elaborated on and we have no other examples, so it's probably best not
to mess too much with it.

(The fact that TKW explicitly calls out the lack of {-taH} as a deliberate
error but not the placement of the {-vIS} verbs themselves makes me wonder
if it's actually an error, but perhaps MO was folding all the erroneous
usages of {-vIS} into one example.)
