I wanted to point out that FTDNA does have a draft tree: ... (change to "draft" and hit go)
The J1 draft structure is shown here: You can see
the placement of L222.2 ...

The YCC committee needs to approve the official tree that FTDNA uses.
The committee doesn't meet very often. They have been overwhelmed by
all the new SNPs that FTDNA (Thomas Krahn's Houston Lab) has found in
the last year (something like 270 SNPs! so far). Much effort is
necessary to approve the new tree. SNP testing is of course essential to
the whole process.
