In some ways, I think the SCA operates closer to the French idea of nobility 
than the English system we've adopted for the Chivalry.  Noblesse par 
chevalerie seems to cover a wider range than just knights (say Laurels and 
Court Baronages), while noblesse de robe matches nicely with Pelicans and 
noblesse par fiefs does for the landeds.  Not really something I'm 
knowledgeable in, but a casual encounter with concepts leads to some 
interesting ideas.
