We defend the bundling hypothesis for agreement, which entails that agreement on a target that contains person will always reflect the person feature of the controller. A putative counterexample to this hypothesis comes from Sakha exceptional case marking constructions, where verbs appear to agree in number with a raised accusative object while ignoring person. We argue that this case is not a genuine counterexample, however, because the agreement marker in question is not a person marker. Evidence for this comes from its distribution (optionality, co-occurrence with local persons), separate morphological expresssion from person, and history.
