According to FTDNA's Draft Y tree for Haplogroup R at :

R1b1b (FTDNA & ISOGG 2010) a.k.a. R-P297 may be re-mapped to R1b1a
R1b1c (FTDNA & ISOGG 2010) a.k.a. R-M335 may be re-mapped to R1b1b
R1b1a (FTDNA & ISOGG 2010) a.k.a. R-V88** may be re-mapped to R1b1c

**R-M18 was sitting at R1b1c but gets bumped down below R-V88 to R1b1c1

Thus R-M269 (currently R1b1b2) may become R1b1a2. I must admit that I
don't understand the rational for this re-mapping proposal since none of
the three R1b1 sub-trees has actually moved relative to each other, so
I'm assuming it is simply the result of an error in the last update.

Of course, this is only a draft tree proposal and may not necessary
reflect the direction that FTDNA / the YCC intends to go with regards to
the aforementioned hierarchal labelling. Did the new haplogroup posters
given out at the FTDNA2010 conference reflect this update at all?
