"...If you don't know your SNPs and you're trying to compare the findings
of clade-oriented articles published a couple of years apart, you could
get onto the wrong branch of the tree pretty quickly if you aren't paying

Actually if you are a YSEARCH user and a HAP-Verify box is added to each
YSEARCH record to denote that you have been "SNP verified" as you did to
R1b1c-M269, then FTDNA could "dynamically" compare your SNP to any new YCC
table updates. Then they could "dynamically" update you HAPLOGROUP on

Should be a piece of cake for a good programmer to create a lookup table of
SNP Sub-clades with their haplgroups...and on a periodic basis run this
table against the YSEARCH records to update your YSEARCH haplogroup.

The only problem is that you would have to retest every so often for new
SNP sub-clades (upstream or downstream) to stay up to date. Which a good
genealogist would do..
