Perusing the last 10 years of Laurels letters revealed:
November 1993 LoAR
"Dana Mac An Ghabhann. Name for House Mac an Ghabhann Ruadh.
Ruadh must agree in case and gender with ghabhann, which 
in this case would make it ruaidh. Since the submitters 
allowed no changes or corrections at all to the name, 
it must be returned."

June 1992 LoAR
"Dana Mac an Ghabhann. Household name for House Mac an Ghabhann.
Conflict with Clan MacGowan, cited in the LoI. Mac an Ghabhann 
is merely the older form of MacGowan."

A conflict was called against an historical Scottish clan then
and the conflict would remain the same today.

The grandfather clause would not be of any use for
this conflict.

However from Daud's comments it looks like
House Mac An Ghabhann Ruaidh was registerable at the time.

Any one else care to take a crack at this one?
