I will definitely keep a close watch on DNATribe as they update their populations. They charge $25 to rerun your alleles against their updated populations. When I spoke with them, they confirmed that they should have a more complete West Africa soon as they are in progress of tagging and loading.
I suppose in absence of any other areas, it is reasonable to infer surrounding regions. But you are correct that as any of these studies expand their populations, you will need to rerun as you may have higher results in the added populations. Even though this is the case also with AA, I plan to take their test and rerun periodically as they update.
I have also expanded my sample with FTDNA to test the mtDNA. I'll review and depending the results will take AA analysis only for $200.
