Celestial Combat won't send you into Trauma - it's a highway to oblivion via Force stripping. Even losing all Corporeal Forces won't kill you physically (though on a maximum of 0 body hits, you can never regain consciousness) unless something else has already damaged you: and even then you aren't present for the Vessel's death, so don't suffer trauma.

Generally anything that normally does corporeal damage does ethereal damage when used in the Marches - a possible exception is Kiss of Death (IN p159) which is a Will attack that specifies that it does physical damage.

It's an interesting thought - perhaps Saminga could have an Attunement that allows this? It would make sense given his Word, his Egyptian connections, and the mutual antipathy between Saminga and Beleth.
