The Judge's Handbook states: "Haft colorings must be judged on the basis
of whether they add to or detract from the appearance of the flower.". 
I suppose this could be somewhat subjective.  In the handbook the haft
colorings come under flower color which is worth only 5 points on "the
scale of points".  So if a judge did have a problem with the haft marks
they should only deduct up to the 5 points.  I did not research other
types of iris but was refering to tall beardeds.
