That's what I do in Moten (where it's much more developped than in Euskara, as it is a general principle of Moten grammar, and works also for verbs). Really there's nearly no ambiguity generally. In Moten, ambiguity arises mainly because adjectives are mainly nouns used in appositions with other nouns, and generally put after the noun they complete, while usual nominal complements are put in front of the completed noun.
