I kind of get your point...

A ver si no la lío más:

Subjuntivo con perspectiva de futuro:

Los chicos exploradores sabían que si querían dormir tranquilos, deberían dejar el fuego encendido.

Así que decidieron que lo iban a dejar encendido.

Los chicos exploradores se fueron a dormir a sus tiendas, dejando el fuego encendido.

I think, Perikles, that is just a matter of grammatical agreement. Logical or not logical. Why do we call a "ball" a "ball" and not "un balón", or viceversa, it is just a matter of agreement.

Instrumento de barrido - mejor "instrumento para barrer" - escoba.
Material de curtido (material para curtir)
Tiempo de hervido (tiempo en que la receta indica que se tiene que hervir)
Requisito exigido (requisito que se exige)
Recurso socorrido
Argumento esgrimido (el argumento que se esgrime)
Lo propio de la verdad es que se basta a sí misma, aquel que la posee no intenta convencer a nadie.
"An enemy is somebody who flatters you. A friend is somebody who criticizes the living daylights out of you."
