@Hakumin and @Shoreguy, yes I agree. I have that annoyingly curious mind that got me into science long ago. I just cannot stop speculating about how stuff works. I've become a bit hesitant to post science based speculation on forums as it can turn hobbiests off sometimes. Just because I think it's just a bit of fun, not everyone comes with that approach ... some just want to enjoy their orchids in an analysis free space, which is fair enough.

The useful side of having these discussions is that it brings ideas, experiences and information together, and even this only raises more questions, that in itself is useful. I was meaning to start a thread on variegation but never got around to posting it. The central idea is that variegation involves mutations that would be lethal if they were expressed in all cells in the leaves. The shima types and tiger types solve this problem in different ways. I'll work on this and post it sometime, because I know that you guys most likely have answers to some of my questions.

Just in case you've not come across it, there was a paper published about using Neos as a model organism to study developmental biology in plants. The reasoning was that there are so many mutations already out there. The paper was by a group led by Minsung Kim at the University of Manchester, UK.

Mutant Flower Morphologies in the Wind Orchid, a Novel Orchid Model Species.
Sascha Duttke, Nicholas Zoulias, and Minsung Kim. (2012)
Plant Physiology vol:158 pages: 1542-1547

As far as I remember the paper is open access and if you're interested in neos and haven't downloaded a copy, I highly recommend that you do. I did contact Dr. Kim but he said they were not taking this any further.
