What if Mark had not been squeezed into a Miles size and shape but had been allowed to grow strong and healthy with a Komarran mindset and introduced on Barrayar as a nonmutie heir to Aral? The political disruption would almost been as bad as the assassination attempt.

Whoa! That would be something to see.

Count and countess Vorkosigan would probably accept him just as they did 
Mark (and for the same reasons) - but Miles might have felt that they 
accepted him because he is Miles-as-could-have-been.  Plenty of space 
there for the story to turn dark, or light.

That is some idea, I love it!

Someone should write fan fiction with that premise, I'd read it.
