Hmmmmm, well if it adds to the flower why is it a defect?  does it cause problems with flower ie. opening or twisting ?  I have an ice blue seedling that has a clear rim that I really like and have used it for breeding specifically for the rim on the standards....probably just comes down to personal preference.
