FIDE Album 2016-18 announcement

I've just seen the latest (2016-18) FIDE Album announcement and noticed that the Fairy section was splitted into two sub-sections: G1 (fairies without fairy conditions) and G2 (fairies with fairy conditions).
This decision was surely made in order to reduce the judges' workload but I think composers (and surely myself!) are left with some uncertainties.
I refer specifically to Imitator (this is the most striking case I can recall at the moment but I'm sure that there are other similar cases): Imitator is seen by the two well-known solving programs Popeye and WinChloe in totally different way, as a condition OR as a fairy piece respectively.
Thus which section should a problem with Imitator belong to?

Of course imitator is not the only (debatable) case.

For a composer it is of no concern if a specific composition belongs to group G1 or G2. He will include it in the PDF file he will prepare either for G1 or for G2.

The director (together with the judges) will decide if the composition belongs to G1 or G2 and, if necessary, re-arrange.

The important point is that all submitted compositions featuring an imitator are reviewed by only one set of judges.

Since it was not specifically mentioned in the announcement, I was just concerned that a problem sent to the wrong sub-section (=not fulfilling enter criteria) would have been rejected.
Thanks for clarifying that!
