This is a funny question, which is even funnier because the "-lI" seems to suggest that the targ is committing suicide.

Remember that the -pu'/-ta' distinction is based on intent, but the -taH/-lI' distinction is based on there being a definite end point. I'd say death is a pretty definite end point.
