In 2000, Ornella Semino had proposed that haplogroups J and G shared
"Haplotypes Eu9, Eu10, and Eu11share the 49a,f haplotype 8 or its
derivatives, which are not observed in any of the other 16 Eu
haplotypes (19), suggesting a shared common ancestry. "
This seems to be invalidated by the new S22 SNP, which groups I with J
at the exclusion of G.
The new haplogroup should be called IJ, but it's not guaranteed that
such a "clean" solution will be found for all newly discovered
internal branches. For example, if G and IJ were found to have an even
older common mutation, then we wouldn't be able to use GJ, because
this would (erroneously) include H.
