This is from the SCA glossary of terms.

Peripheral Charge Group. A charge or group of charges that are placed 
on the field near the edge of a piece of armory without affecting the 
rest of the design.
Peripheral charges include (but are not limited to): chiefs, bordures, 
cantons, bases, points, flaunches, orles and orles of charges. Gores 
and gussets are not peripheral charges (because they extend so far 
into the center of the field). Peripheral charges are not primary 
charges, even if they are the only charges on the field.

This would indicate that a peripheral ordinary is not eligible
for the rules that apply to primary charges.
