Actually there IS a reason to suppose it in the case of R-U152, and
Ken alluded to it. The age of the nodes upstream from R-U152 (i.e. R-
S116, R-S128, etc.) are only slightly greater than the age of R-U152
itself. Since it is not possible to for R-U152 to be older than R-
S116, and the TMRCA R-S116 is squarely in the neolithic era, R-U152
cannot have a TMRCA before the neolithic.
