I always thought the rules for heraldry were pretty straightforward - while 
naming practices could be pretty vague and complex, making it very easy to 
trip up what looks like a fairly straight forward process.  Don't do metal 
on metal is easy, and clearly spelled out, but where does it tell you that - 
say- Shimazu Ryobe is -possible- as a name for my 15th century 
merchant-wanderer, but it's implausible :)
