A new paper has been published introducing a "minimal reference phylogeny for the Y-chromosome". The paper also attempts to implement a common nomenclature for the basal Y-SNPs and haplogroups. In case it's of any interest I've written a blog post with my thoughts on the implication of this paper:

The authors say: "We welcome suggestions from users for the inclusion of novel Y-SNPs in this tree, whenever new data indicates their relevance according to the aforementioned criteria." If any key basal SNPs have been omitted I would suggest that people write to Mannis Van Oven and provide the data to make the case for their inclusion.

Thanks Debbie. I will try to follow the mentioned development of a true Y-reference as a large part of the current one is U152+ L2+ L20+ and shows many derived locations as ancestral.
