My guess, as Serena suggested, that the charter for the award will be specific on the 
marshalling areas.  Likely, tradition will suggest using: 
Chivalric, Rapier, Equestrian, Archery, Knife/Ax/Spear(though don't know about the last).
It's possible the charter will designate the categories; though if marshal arts increase to
include other areas, the charter would have to be adjusted.  
Unlike the Sable Thistle, where a wide-range of arts categories are possible, 
I'm thinking the marshalling options will be more limited; though not as specific 
as 'Crossbow vs. Longbow', but more generic as: 'Archery'. 

Guess we get to wait and see!  :-)
