Brian, If spades are natural - I guess you could say so are hearts and diamonds! I'm sure you will have plenty of examples on the other side of DeRosa and Pogliaghi.

I have a $10 (via paypal) reward for the first photo of a known PX-10 with a cutout lug window in the bottom bracket.

That is in fact correct. I'm pretty sure the spade cutout will be found on any number of "not-so-well-known" frames both before and since Mario. I myself have been cutting spades in lugs and BB shells since 1974. It's a common and natural thing to cut into a lugs.

AFAIK, Peter Johnson&#65533;cut the ace of spades into his lugs&#65533;before Confente.
