I recently noticed that the T marker has moved away from the "default" M70 subclade marker ( of which there is 3 branches, T1a1, T1a2 and T1a3 ) and is now settled on the M184 as the main marker. My question is ...........is this in preparation for a new branch out of M184 to rival M70 or purely only a fix on an old confused system?

Secondly, I heard a rumour that T will merge with L and the vacant T will be given to R1b due to this proposed "shorthand" that geno and FTDNA are using or begin to use......again, it seems like a far flung rumour.
I do think something needs to be done for R when all R1a, R1b and R2 are 'joined"
