An example would be «kau'i poi ke'a gerku zo'u kau'i batci mi .i kau'i
zvati ti» which is the same thing as what the utterance would be with
formal replacement of kau'i with di if .i were to be replaced with
.ije.

All right, this makes some sense (and I like the elephant pun, now that
it's explained). The definition could be much clearer. Also, since we
already have the ko'V/fo'V series which does not forget its assignments,
I'm not sure kau'[aei] adds a ton of value: I believe (please correctly me
if I missed some nuance) that your example is the same as ko'i goi di poi
ke'a gerku zo'u ko'i batci mi .i ko'i zvati ti
. di may be lost in the
next sentence but ko'i should persist until da'o.

jbovlaste mangled my response pretty badly. Here it is again.

already have the ko'V/fo'V series which does not forget its assignments,
I'm not sure kau'V adds a ton of value: I believe (please correctly me if
I missed some nuance) that your example is the same as «ko'i goi di poi
ke'a gerku zo'u ko'i batci mi .i ko'i zvati ti». di may be lost in the
next sentence but ko'i should persist until da'o.
