Especially if we are judges.  So, cultivars without hafts become the "in" thing, and hafts become "bad". 
Griff, lack of haft marks must be retro!  
When I started, hafts were NOT desirable. The idea was to produce selfs with little or no haft marks!  I was told (honest) not to use plicatas with selfs because they would give ugly busy hafts. 
Then Joe Ghio introduced NOTORIOUS and hafts were "in" again! 
As in other styles, if you wait it will all come back. 
Though in all honesty, I don't think we are talking about the same critter.  The hafts of olden days were the dark lines at the shoulders that gave discord to the overall beauty of the bloom.  Anything extending beyond the beard isn't really on the "hafts!"  (??)
