Ben, Thank you for the reply.
According to Schmid, what was once H. sieboldiana var fortunei is now reduced to cultivar form as H. 'Tokudama'.  Works for me.  The question then is which are we to think of as the "proper" name?  Since it is a hybrid, should IT be referred to as a cultivar without the inclusion of a species name.  I suppose calling it H. sieboldiana 'Tokudama' is out since this refers to but one of the parents?
