Arreat Summit has this text on it's "Circlets"- page:That's a interesting point: is a tiara exceptional or elite? All other base-types have 3 sub-types, but circlets have 4 (Circlet, Coronet, Tiara, & Diadem). So are there 2 elite-types, 2 exceptional-types, or semi-elite/super-elite? I think the last was assumed the case since there is no unique for either Circlet or Coronet. I assume it was removed because someone felt they might get edged out by a Kira's, and whined until it was removed (just a guess, based on how these things tend to go)
GoMule report consider's Kira's as an Elite item, for what it's worth. Treasure Class for Kira's is 72, which is awfully high for Exceptional Item. Guess there were enough other reasons to leave it out. Dunno if it really makes much difference in the MFO though. What was the score for Kira's in 2012 data?*Circlet and Coronet are Normal (Basic) grade helms, Tiara is Exceptional and Diadem is Elite.
