Thanks, very interesting!
I'm not sure his conclusion is correct for some hypothetical grammars, even though it works well for Algonquian.
I've put something together for Jan10 where in the protolanguage object marking becomes contingent on word order, although I don't know if this kind of thing is attested anywhere, especially since SOV is marked and OSV isn't!
