I worked with a similar idea about two years ago. I documented some of 
my ideas on the matter at

 > "house PASSIVE-have Dana yellow"

In my model this expression is only remotely ambiguous, because the 
attribute of yellow is either the preceding attribute
((h)P)H((d)Y)
or the entire preceding expression
((((h)P)H)d)Y,
which is unlikely.

The key to problems like this always comes down to locating the center 
of the expression, then the rest unwinds nicely. It would be helpful if 
the center is marked somehow.
