[SCA-Dance] Documenting Argeers for an A&S competition

I have heard from someone who was there when the SCA was getting more organized 
(i.e. California in the 60s) that they specifically wanted to include Playford 
1651 dances.  She said another reason they used 1650 was because that was as 
early as they could find kilts, which they also wanted to include.

Should I bother with other factors, like
- easy to get sources in English
- a vibrant non-SCA community so people can pick it up there

And maybe: not much usable info on English dance before Playford?
I'll put that into a separate thread.
