I believe that late medieval Japan IS covered by the SCA.  What do you have
saying otherwise?

I'll be pedantic about terminology.

"Could": lacking heraldry police, it could be "artistically" redrawn as
Darth Vader's helm affronty, and the bend redrawn as two bars nebuly, and
the field could add semy of Volkswagen Beetles ancient.

"Should" is a different question.  I am a proponent of "register what you
drew and draw what you registered", if for no other reason than why the
dickens should you bother paying money and taking everyone's time with a
design that you're not going to use?  The reason for the precedent is that
no evidence has yet been presented showing it in Western European heraldry,
and Laurel asserted that it is not identifiable in those terms.  Japan is
not within the domain of the SCA.
