It won't matter at all which fiducial surface you choose  if they 
differ only in translation.  If they differ in shape (as occurs for 
different versions of the human atlas), it would make a very small 
difference in the registration, as the fiducial surface is used to 
limit areal distortion in regions between landmarks.
