Yes, this is what I've seen also. And Dupuy's recent paper is a good
reference source for mutation rate variation as a function of allele length.
Pointers to this paper were posted recently.

They should not have the same rate if sorted by allele length. The
later ones (d) will likely have a higher rate than the earlier
ones (a) since they simply have a higher number, and these seem
to mutate faster. This is in fact what I see, and for 464 it is
