SHOW: Questions about rules

Several of us have been discussing the judges handbook and one of the things
that came up is the statement on pg 56 that:  "A tall bearded iris variety
should produce between 3 and 5 increases per rhizome per year."    The
questions raised were:
1. At what time of the year do you count increase to determine whether or
not an iris has met this criteria.
2. Do you count fans that produced a bloomstalk?  For instance, if you have
a 2 year old clump with 10 fans and 3 of them have bloomstalks.  Do you
assume that the 3 with bloomstalks were last years fans (because you planted
one and got the minimum 3 increase the first year) and the remaining 7 are
increase for the second year?  That would mean that 3 bloomstalks X 3
(minimum increase) should be 9 increase and this fan only had 7 making it
below acceptable.  Or, do you figure a two year old clump should have 9-25
increase and this clump has a total of 10 fans making it within the minimum
