Yes, yes, I figured that out. And as I say, there's nothing that
forces us to conclude that there _must_ be *h3 in this ending.
We know that Sanskrit /u/ is not a normal reflex of any laryngeal
which is probably why we don't often see **-oh3 reconstructed.
This is all a very unlikely idea concocted by Miguel.
