spray good named varieties with any of several different herbicides! But would
they be registered as new varieties?

I understand  that variegated foliage  works if the genetic code plus cytopasmic codes are present.  Thus spraying would likely only work if code was already in genes but not in cytoplasm as spraying would likely only affect cytoplasm. There are a few plants around tha tseem to have this gene, Sea Quest and Sargent Preston  aare two. Other candidates would be anything  tht has a variagated parent (pod or pollen in this case) but has green foliage.
 For reference look up cytoplasmic inheritence.
