That's interesting but you may want to consider kit N23620 in the K Project
with 16224C, 16311C and 16519C. This person's maternal paper trail goes back
to 1691 in Portugal and the surname (carried forward along the female line)
has been documented in western Iberia since the eighth century. N23620
started out as K1c and now appears as simply "K". We've been waiting nearly
four months to get the results of an FGS (batch 330) which should help in
definition. Of course, I can't think of any reason why all K's in Iberia
must fit into one particular category, but the fact you saw a pattern as you
did is interesting nonetheless.
