Actually, someone here has argued that we need the underlying structure
of local groups before we create principalities.  I'm just arguing that we
have that already, and I think your cases argue to, rather then against my
position ;-).

I think Earl Dafydd has argued in the past that THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM 
(tm) but only a case of Eastern Rite versus Western Rite and MidRealm 
tradition.  Atlantia has never had large Crowns, but we don't think of it 
as a problem.

But you are right, that is another thread ;-).
