I always thought that OS meant that the plant was the same as  the plant that
was the plant of the introducer. And if you grew it and gave a division of it
to someone it would still be OS. 
If it were Tissue cultured and the resulting plants were the same as the OS
they would be OS. If a mutant results either from natural sporting or from TC
it would be something else. 
If a plant that was tissue cultured and the TC was successful it would be OS. 

I think we should forget about the term OS.
