SPEC-X: Bearded Spec-X

The other day I received the flyer of "Bearded Irises" from Lynn and 
Peter Markham.  They use i.aphylla quite a bit in their breeding lines 
and produce aphylla hybrids.  These are registered as Spec-X.

Brad Kasperek's BLUEBERRY FILLY is a Spec-X from Ostry White, 
an aphylla.

Ben Hager used i.aphylla and i.balkana, but he did not register them 
as Spec-X.  They were MTBs, IBs, TBs.

I think Vicki Craig also uses i.aphylla in her MTBs and IBs, and they 
are registered as such, and not Spec-X.

My question is why are some registered as Spec-X and others not?  
Is there a quantum factor here as in arilbreds?  How long have we 
had Spec-X?
