No bearing on the subject at all, but given my influences for imagining the Lunar Army, this is occasionally a distant relict of military cartographers writing all tribal names phonetically (in an anonymous Imperial dialect) in the antecedents of the tomes referred to. Coortalee, Seelangee, "The Tribe of the Toorkanee" etc. Well, some of 'em do wear scarlet.

Not entirely serious (but a touch)
