Yeah, it's interesting that as the AU tropes have developed in fandom, people seem to be going for "same-moiety different-gender full siblings can marry since there will be no sex so it doesn't count, but opposite-moiety siblings marrying would be incest and weird" which is exactly the opposite of how the Ki'O stories do it - I had actually forgotten the taboo on full siblings as marriage partners in the same sedoretu* until I started my re-read.

*although Ki'O culture does also allow for "my weird uncle who sleeps with my dad sometimes" as part of the family structure, which fandom has mostly been ignoring completely
