In my opinion there is no connection at all between Crown Tourney size and
the consideration (or existence) of Principalities.

Which is a major issue indeed.  I, for example, cannot wear yellow or even
some greens without looking jaundiced.  I know others who cannot wear red
without seeming, well, red-faced.  And although almost anyone can wear
black, that colour makes for funereal bunting.  Very depressing.

However, an issue even dearer to my heart than bunting is the spelling of
my name: three 'd's, only one 'f'.  And when the border-guards of my
soon-to-be established County check for outside infiltrators, spelling my
name will be how they determine the spies.  Sadly, some of my friends will
also be excluded (Corun is a recent example), but that is how it goes.
