Progeny sect change

This is the reason I got into researching this actually!
Aisha az-Zahra: "Independent anarch: During a referendum, Aisha can burn 1 blood to get +1 vote for each ready anarch you control. +1 bleed."
Salvador Garcia: "Independent anarch: While Salvador is ready, cards requiring an anarch cost you and anarchs you control 1 less blood or pool."
Toby: "Camarilla: Once each action, Toby can burn a blood to give an acting anarch +1 bleed." (needs support though, since he is Camarilla)
Inheriting sect in The Embrace or The Becoming would open more options for deck building.

A discussion elsewhere reminded that Derange could also be hit by the change, similar to Clan Impersonation.
This may or may not be considered a problem overall, but it does change things. For example a !Malk deck can use Derange to destabilize a Parity Shift deck because - under the current rules - becoming !Malk makes you Sabbat, and therefore makes the title inert until you resume being Camarilla. In a world where you could Derange Queen Anne, she becomes !Malk, but stays Camarilla, that can't happen.
The same is true of !Malks affecting any non-Sabbat title, and Malks affecting any non-Camarilla title. Justicar titles, being clan based as well as sect based, are still inert while you're the wrong clan, though.
