Minor point...

Actually, it means he's R1b1c. He won't be R1b1c* unless he comes back negative
for the remaining downstream SNPs, including the new ones discovered by

In theory, no one can ever be certain they're * (root) anything because you
can't prove a negative. Or, I guess, at least until we start full-sequencing
the Y-chromosome, the asterisk can only mean: "negative for all downstream SNPs
currently known."
