No one should have the same arms as someone else in another kingdom.  That's
what the college of arms is for.  Jaella's whole mission in life is to
prevent anyone in the SCA from registering arms that look like anyone else's
arms.  Anywhere.

There should be *no need* to "distinguish your banner from those with the
same arms in other kingdoms."

This is actually one of the few remaining reasons why a Court of Arms would
be called on someone in mundane England.  (And also one of the reasons the
Chirurgeons have that upside down 2 in their badges instead of a universally
recognized red cross.)
