Some years back John Lager of the now expunct Lager & Hurrell Orchids
submitted a 4th generation cultivated Cattleya labiata for AOS judging. The
flowers were so much changed and improved over any wild collected and grown
spacimens that the judges disqualified it - claiming it must be of hybrid

I think what we have here is again the awareness that messing around with
objects that originally came from the wild, will eventually lead to objects
that won't make it in nature. This is why I and a colleague of mine
that we also separate the taxonomies of those objects based on different
systematic logic of classification of those objects. They are in 2
contexts ("worlds") and should not be mixed in classifications with
different purposes....bla, bla, bla....
