Vor + Quasi-Vor = OK. Quasi-Vor + accomplished high-ranking prole = OK. Vor + ahrp = a tad questionable. Not quite transitive there because there are ways in which galactics and Komarrans are a bit apart frm the rules. That i, if they can carry it off. I'm sure the insecure ones begging for acceptance will be avidly watched for any breach of the rules. [Can you tell, one of my other favorite worlds in Heyer's Regency?]
