Just to further clarify, yes, we do pay to register heraldic 
submissions, but (in Ansteorra) membership is not required in order to 
submit items for registration.  Anyone can register names/armory, and 
the cost for that is standard for members and non-members alike.

My interpretation of a "pay to play" approach, in this regard, would 
mean that membership would be required before one could submit 
names/armory for registration, in addition to whatever additional 
processing fees the College of Arms/Heralds requires.  It also opens up 
the avenue for a non-member surcharge applied to submission costs.  For 
the record, I am not in favor of either of these options. 

In service,
