I personally think the term SPECIES X is being misused.  I think it 
quite apropriate when one parent is a species. i.e. I. aphylla, I. 
croatica, I. pumilla. etc.  With iris 2 generations or more removed  
from an actual species, I do not think the Species X term is applicable. 
I think the term SPECIES X  is a great classification for any first 
generation crosses with different species.
Also it is my understanding  there are Irisarians who want to eliminate 
all the classes outside of TB's and want to lump them into one class 
known as Medians.  This would no doubt fragment the membership in the 
AIS.  It is possible the AIS would loose several hundred members if 
they  do eliminate these classes.   It would do away with SDB, IB, MTB 
and BB classifications.
Time will tell.
