I recently read that some mDNA actually can come from the paternal line so this could potentially muddy the results if you are comparing between siblings mitochondria.
Dr Light alluded to this when he answered a question from the audience.

There were also other questions on roughly acquired vs inherited but my brain is too fried to remember now.

@sb4, in the Q&A after his talk Dr Light said (and I'm paraphrasing here) that he thought the paternally inherited mtDNA situation was too rare to be an issue and that it would likely constitute a pathology of its own.
