This confirms my doubt with little possibility of appeal, unless someone can cite a natlang counterexample... My decision is taken: no glottalized to aspirated sound change. I'll have to look for something better. >However, languages can change in some rather unintuitive ways. Yes, this is a possibility I never forget, but this one was just the first possibility that came to my mind. I decided to allow it a test drive, but I already wasn't very happy with it. Happy conlanging, Tommaso.
