Ah, are they scroll or are they charters?  If scrolls then I agree, but we 
give out very few scrolls and a vast amount of charters.  Are you giving 
credit who did the original artwork on the charter or the colorist? And I 
have to say if you are giving credit to the illuminator why not the scribe 
as well.  I agree if someone does an impressive work and an original scroll 
then perhaps more attention should be paid, but I think that giving credit 
to the colorist of the charter would only lengthen the court.

It does make one pause however.
