That has pretty much been my interpretation so far as well...I had the
same quandry when I was given an augmentation to my arms (mon) of two
golden dragons. Mons were being registered at the time only in black
and white. I submitted my device change with the golden dragons as
awarded. Laurel wanted to know if I didn't want to change them to
white/silver to go with the rest of my mon. I said that I didn't...I am
a visitor in a European Court, a "barbarian round-eye" king who didn't
know any better had given me this honor and it would be dishonorable of
me to change his gift! Laurel agreed...with a grin!
