A valid point John and one that I have discussed with Paul Black and 
Keith Keppel. One of the  primary parts of the definition is the 
absence of anthocyanin in the beard and bottom part of standards and 
falls. Genisis Project fits this. Keith wanted to see it in bloom 
before saying definatly if it was a luminata as he was wondering if 
there was some residual anthocyanin giving the darker yellow its 
shading. I havn't heard back fronm him on this yet. The original 
luminatas were on white ground, this one is on yellow ground. The 
same way we have pink and yellow glaciatas and not just white 
glaciatas.  I'm arguing for genotype as being the decisive factor and 
have an ambitious research project underway  to corelate genotype 
with phenotype with plicatas. Anyone interest in preliminary 
results/theories feel free to contact me offlist.
This is similar to the old lumpers versus spliters in species 
definition. If we name every nuance of shade, background colour etc,  
we will soon be up to our ears in colour names.
