That agrees with my table, and you can throw in K as well. This, of course,
refers to modal values for clades within these haplogroups. We are bound to
find more "family" positioned mutations to 426 = 10 here and there, but it
is amazing how rare they are. I have a research database of about 1400
haplotypes across the entire set of clades in haplogroup I

Not counting the I1a-EE clade, there is only one haplotype out of the 1400
with DYS426 = 10 ----- and I better check that guy. Ken
