I can see that link and can appreciate that mindset. But I must still insist it is Mag/Halli so that I can go full Pacific Rim with the 'science' orgs merging.
Well the game did well for years with just 4 orgs, until Glom overtook everything. I don't remember as much before Glom since I was an actual noobie back then. If we did that and brought out a jojobo/ackleberry commune later and you just create the skills slowly starting with ackleberry skills then jojobo skills. When the population can handle it. Sun definitly doesn't fit well with moon or night themes because of the excorable nature of it to wise. It might fit a little better with lake. I can see an air/water theme considering rain storms a prevalent in both mage groups and the magma theme would fit well also. With the extended culture of those combined orgs. I'm not exactly sure what those would look like.
There is also what to do with mage demesnes. Obviously two different kind of mages will have trouble holding areas it may end up combined into a magmamancy and stormancy group. Keeping them seperate in the chemantic abilities.
What's happening with the melder rework?
