I'm very much looking forward to seeing these. :-)

Nice! I've played with this in some conlangs of mine. Actually, some
allow tense markers on nouns, namely those that don't distinguish
nouns and verbs: Qthyn|gai -- oops it's only one! Tyl Sjok, and I
think Fukhian, also recently discovered to not distinguish nouns and
verbs either, both don't have grammatical tense at all.

Again, I wonder what those will be. The maximum I did was three, in
Qthyn|gai -- no, wait, those are just syntactical re-organisations not
changing focus, so they are no voices. Five seems a lot to me.
Or are those 'voices' really triggers?
