So the difference between similar appearing zonals and luminatas is..?

I have followed similar threads in the past (archives) and looked for 
information in any number of iris books, but still see much confusion.

Does a cv have to have plicata ancestry to come up with luminata's (or 
for that matter Glaciatas) in it's offspring? I thought the answer to 
this would be no, as the luminata is a different expression of the 
plicata gene. Surely a cv could carry pl-lu genes without having any pl 
genes in its ancestry. Is there something wrong with this thinking? That 
is why I asked what would happen if I crossed a 'zonal' with a luminata. 
Has anyone done this? 
Walter? Bill? Sharon? ..........is there anyone out there?  :-))
