Alden, read the precedent she quoted again, specifically this section:

> The difference between three bendlets and three bendlets enhanced is

Even though I agree the bendlets are drawn much thinner in the second
emblazon, this part of the precedent says that they are still considered the
same and there is no difference between the two. So the conflicts Teceangl
called are still valid conflicts and the client will have to find something
to clear the conflicts.
