Does this mean that we will also be able to choose to make an Iconic whatever class we want at 1st level after an Iconic TR? Or will somebody TRing into a Morninglord still have to start with a minimum of 1 level of cleric that can only be replaced with a LR?
Will the iconic PL class be determined by the iconic, or by the preponderance of class levels?
Would a Pal 2 / Sorc 18 / Epic 8 Bladeforged get the Paladin (because it is Bladeforged) or Sorc (because that's where the bulk of the levels are) PL?

Apologies if this has already been answered somewhere:
Do all new Reincarnations preserve your current ED's the way TR does now? If I do a Heroic True Reincarnation at, say level 24, will I have upon reaching level 20 all the Epic Destiny points where I left them off?
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
"Of course it is. Are YOU going to question beholder's artistic sense?"
We're planning to add subcategories on the character sheet for each kind of past life.
There are four new Iconic Past Lives, one for each iconic. The IPL is always based on your Iconic race.
You also get a separate class-based Heroic Past Life, the same as you have been able to get for years now. Those Heroic Past Lives are essentially unchanged, and are determined by your dominant class, as currently happens in U19.
so for those of us still working on our completionists and stuff, The process is going to be:
1. Get to Cap.
2. use an Epic Heart.
3. LR through the 20 levels.
4. Use a heroic heart.
Retaking the 20 levels just to immediately TR seems like it's going to be a waste of time. You had mentioned that if there's a demand for "Retrain this current life" you guys will code it. I'm voicing my vote to code it, please.
To avoid confusion, all reincarnations except for Lesser Reincarnation do affect other epic advancement (and even Lesser affects it, but you can make the same choices again during LR). You won't keep any Epic Levels or Epic Feats earned from character level progression.
When is Karma going to be consumed exactly?
Suppose I'm hating my FvS life, and HTR at level 23 after filling out Exalted Angel. Will that earned karma be wiped on HTR, or only when used in an ER?
If my main is an Arti, that enjoys no synergy with 8/11ths of the destinies, and I do a life as a druid, can I bank Karma in other spheres? For example, the first ER chooses a Primal EPL; what happens to the Divine, Martial, and Arcane karma earned?
If Karma is a point system, where you're earning 1 karma per 1,000,000 epic xp (for example), why clear the destiny instead of decrement it? Presuming that the 3 feats in a sphere have differing Karma requirements, a 1 point, 2 point, and 3 point: If I earn 5 karma, and spend 2 karma on a past life, why is the other 3 lost?Clear your heroic and epic XP as well as Karma from the Epic Destiny Sphere you selected,

Timers for True Reincarnation are likely to be one shared timer for both Iconic and Heroic. Lesser reincarnation likely remains on its own timer as it is now. Epic Reincarnation is likely on a brand new timer.
We are also considering allowing LR+0 as a special case to be used regardless of all timers, and not starting a timer when used. There are some concerns and issues with repeatedly performing LR+5 in a short span of time that are not as major concerns for LR+0.
These are all subject to change. The exact times are subject to review and change with U20 as well. We may consider reducing the one week timer.
The user experience in this case could be simular to ITR -- lv cap [at 28] as a non-iconic character, True reincarnate as an epic character (probably a new Heart of Wood), start at level one with an Epic and Class PL. (Same as quite above w/a couple steps skipped) --
Again, this will not be in U20; I left it out of the OP to keep focus on U20.

This all sounds really good. I am actually excited to hop on the ETR train now.
Could we possibly inject completionist as a passive feat into the conversation since it is somewhat related?
