My thought, not being a herald, is that as with the Knightly White Belt,
and lots of Metal stuff on your head, as these are *Society Reserved*
dumaflagies, Supporters, etc. should probably be avoided on things you
are making for SCA purposes.

OTOH, if you were making them for yourself, to hang in your home, for your
own appreciation, put the stupid things in there.
