a very interesting case system

i just came up with a very interesting case system.  the cases are:
causative, agentive, instrumental, benefactive, vocative, conformative,
locative, inessive, comitative, privative, superessive, subessive,
allative, ablative,  introessive, elative, perlative, and circumlative

anyone see what's so interesting about it?  it doesn't have any case for
the direct object of a transitive verb, so this language could have only
intransitive verbs!  hehehe! isn't that pure evil? ;)))

here's a sentence i came up with:
filide tumana tasile kake bitane.
fly.PAST INSTR.hand.SING ALL.window CAUS.he AGNT.stone
"he threw the stone at the window."
