The insertions vary greatly between haplogroups, from 29% in K, 3% in H, and 0% in others. The deletions are more common in subclades without the insertions. That's based on my Jogg article from 2007: http://www.jogg.info/32/hurst.htm
It's fairly common to find a close match except for being one pair off on these indels.
> About these CACA repeats : any work done on how frequent are these insertions / deletions ? (I am concerned : I have an extra CA ). I don't know any mtDNA related to mine but I was wondering about the chances to find a close one but with a different CA repeat number at 523/524 .
