Well acording to the charter read in court, (cliped from Stars posting) 

"We charge and command <him/her> to consult with Us and Our College of
Heralds for the exact form and to speedily register such Augmentation." 

The Crowns words as read in to Law at Coronation did not specify the
form of the augmentation. So it would seem he can register what ever is
deemed apropriate by the college. Yes? no?
