Taking this discussion down a slightly different route in a new thread, 
we could potentially change FinalMarking to look at all nonclean cards 
instead of only dirty cards if UseCondCardMark is enabled.

I suspect that there is a fair bit of performance work needed to 
determine which of these approaches is the most beneficial.
