I'm afraid I can't understand this.

In the {DI'onmeyna'Daj 'agh 'aghqu' 'aghchu'} sentence, the
{DI'onmeyna'Daj} is the object of the {'agh}, and the subject of {'agh} is
an omitted {vay'}. Can't the following verbs {'aghqu'}/{'aghchu'} have an
omitted {DI'onmeyna'Daj}/{vay'} as object/subject?

I understand the reasoning why just writing {qaStaHvIS yInDaj DISmey,
DI'onmeyna' 'aghtaH} is better, but I can't understand why the original
sentence could be considered ungrammatical. I'm wondering whether there's
something I'm missing regarding omitting subjects/objects.
