I don't see any problems with that at this point, other than
the conceptual ugliness.

I tend to think of the morphology processing as separate from the
syntax processing. Your parser does everything together, so reading
the PEG grammar confuses me sometimes. I wonder if it's possible
to write the PEG grammar in such a way that the part that deals
with words only (i.e. not with individual characters) can stand
on its own.
