I can imagine a lot of possible idiomatic uses for a verb that means "to be upon".

For example, "Hunger is upon me" for "I am hungry", "Sleep is upon me" for "I am sleepy". Maybe thirst, fatigue, illness, and post-workout-soreness could also be upon someone. Perhaps happiness could also be upon someone.

Why does be exist with the case system you've come up with? It seems like you'd either have one or the other.

I don't think that case system was used in the discussed translation. There are some competing ideas and I don't think we'll really know which one comes out on top until we have more use. Survival of the fittest, where "fittest" = "most widely adopted").

I think there are adjectives where the metaphor might break. While it IMHO seems appropriate for anything living, it just feels bad to say that red is upon the book (nenvil zongas kuida). So we can maybe find a use for both constructions.
