Yes, very interesting indeed. I do know that FTDNA is selecting a suite of
coding region SNPs for haplogroup definitions. They have not published a list of
which loci they are using, but at one point (from memory) someone here posted
that they were using about 20 SNPs. That may not be sufficient. Along the
same lines, someone recently posted that M* and C haplogroups seemed to be
experiencing some cross-talk.

Please keep us informed!
