Shoshanna, if your question is for me, no, I don't think this is 
accidental. But then I think that the final he is a mater lectionis. The 
problem is Yigal's position, which seems to be that the final he is 
pronounced but there is no relationship to HYH/HWH. I consider his 
position inconsistent.
