In fact, ba'e will cause many problems, even with left-to-right
ordering, which is why I made a seperate section ("Marking Words")
for it and UI.

{broda ba'e si broda} does very much the wrong thing under the
Exceptionless Rules, for example; the result is {broda *si* broda},
so si stays in the speech stream.
