If you are actually R1a but have 12/12 R1b matches, this would be a rare
example of a 12 marker signature appearing in two different haplogroups. Or
are the R1b matches only 11/12 or 10/12?

FTDNA predicted me to be R1a1 but since there are also two R1b 12-marker
matches in FTDNA's database for me (among the 40 or so R1a/R1a1) they insist
I perform an SNP.

I discussed this with Bennett Greenspan last week at the National
Genealogical Society's annual conference. Not everyone who has tested at
FTDNA will be able to join the NGS database without a SNP. Most of us,
however, will be able to do so. If you have been SNP tested by FTDNA or
your haplogroup predicted by FTDNA, you can join the NGS Genographic
Project. If, however, you do not have a prediction, you will need to be
SNP tested before you can upload to the NGS.

In my DNA project's case, I now have 13 results in, and 12 of us have
predicted haplogroups. So, all but one can upload to the NGS database.
