The discussion on H. 'Cathy's Clown' has been enlightening.   It seems to me 
that registering early is the lesser of two evils but as Chic has said, one 
doesn't feel quite as violated about the name.  Unfortunately, there will be no 
resolution of this desire on the part of gardeners, and growers, to make a 
buck when they can from selling cloned plants.   Theft, however, is a whole 
'nother story.  Ethics vs. the law.  

If you register a plant early before you have observed and evaluated it for 
the predetermined number of years then you will be maligned as one who will 
just register anything to put a name on a plant to sell and will have to live 
with that.
