Mostly just raising the question; I tend to agree with you that the haut
probably don't think too much about the janitors' children (unless one of

But we really know very little of low-level Cetagandan society.

I fear you are right.  On the other hand, compare the Cetagandan set
of genetic decisions with those displayed on Jackson's Hole ;)
