That's the same {zo bu}, {da zei bu}, {lo'u .. bu .. le'u} and
{zoi bu ... bu} all deactivate {bu}.

{lo'u ... le'u bu} is allowed by the exceptionless rules, but the
whole construct is turned into a lerfu. {le'u bu} by itself without
an opening {lo'u} is an error, but the error occurs before {bu}
appears, so it is caused by {le'u}, not by {bu}.

That's the same.

This can also be described by saying that in {da de si bu}, {bu} acts
on the construct {da de si} and not just on the immediately preceding
word {si}.

Those would work in the same way.

That would have to be added as an exception.
