I wouldn't bother with "secret" markers. They are absolutely useless in
scientific research and nobody can control, if they are typed correctly.
It is the same with CDYa/b. Nobody can really use the marker for any
serious scientific project.
There are enough other discriminating SNPs on the Y chromosome that can
be used. Just take anoter one and publish the sequence. Everybody in the
future will use your sequence later, instead of the secret SNP.
