It's a pity because I think that some of these markers are excellent separators and deserve much more attention. If more people were testing for these markers (in place of many of the "67" set) I think that new clusters would emerge. My preferate ones are DYS397 , DYF408, DYS725 and DYF371x. I disagree with what seems to be FTDNA "strategy" : keeping these for those who already tested for the whole set of 67 markers.
Thanks to Didier, Ken, Rebekah, and Jerry for their further comments.
Christmas bills are paid now so I will see about testing for at
least some of the Panel 5 markers. (Hope my wife hasn't gotten tired
yet of hearing me say "But it's for The Science!" ;-) )
