Yes Thomas,  there are more and more :

for example, and i think it is the best one, most of Jim and Vicki Craig's
irises have a lot of aphylla genes.

Paul Black's small flowered TBs also have some.

This is the direction i'm taking too, in order to get branching that starts
from low, more flowers, and a bit smaller, so they are more in proportion with
the plant.
Hardiness should also be in the picture, and if maintenance becomes easier,

But the one that has to be thanked for bringing the aphylla genes in  is Be
Hager, he has done a tremendous work!

Clown Pants is growing fine, even if it's a diploide, will try to cross it
with as many tetra as i can, miracles happen..!

  Subject: [iris] Iris aphylla - easy clean up

  I was out cleaning flowerbeds the other day and was noticing just how easy
it is to remove the dead foliage of aphylla and its first generation
  As I breezed through the clean-up of those irises and then painstakingly had
to pull dead foliage from the normal TB's and also some pallida hybrids... I
wondered if anyone had ever intentionally tried to incorporate this
easily-cleaned-leafless trait into modern irises.
  I'll bet it's also a big part of the reason why aphylla has been reported by
some to be borer resistant - with the leaves coming off so easily, the borer
eggs would go with them!
