Items 1 and 2 in my suggestion were to allay fears we would be stepping
on toes we had no intention of annoying.
Item 4 was in support of Mistress Sara's statements. I agree with her
arguments and feelings about the immediate identification of a branch's
arms and the inherent worth of Society culture and precedent. For all
that I'm annoyed at the net result in my own barony's arms of this
requirement and the strict adherence to Laurel precedent in applying
the Rule of Tinctures to overall charges.
My apologies, I assumed those things would be understood.

That is beyond all question. For decades, Corpora has grandfathered
existing arms. See <http://sca.org/docs/govdocs.pdf>. Corpora, page
16, Corpora VI.C.3.b:
Any item once registered shall remain registered unless the owner
requests its release, and shall be accepted in the Society for the
person for whom it was registered without regard to changes in the=C
rules and standards applied to future submissions, or to the
membership status of the owner.
> 2) continue to allow crowns/coronets in the arms of nobility/royalty
That has not been questioned at this time, or indeed for years.
(The last change was to allow coronets for landless baron/esses.
Previously, it had been reserved to principalities, kingdoms, and the
ranks of duke/duchess, earl/countess, viscount/ess. I think that was
in the late 1990s.)
> 4) continue both the reservation and requirement of the laurel
> wreath in territorial arms.
Please give your reasons.
