That would be nice, but not necessary at the moment. What needs to
be done is for FTDNA to offer these as SNP tests (they obviously have primers)
and test selected people, especially people who or L63+ but SRY10831+
(ancestral) and/or M198-, as well as a selection of people in
different haplotype clusters.

Remember that there are many example of real STRs in people and
chimps where the other species has a repeat count of say 4.
