Regarding retro vs clone vs whatever:
To me, retro means a modern reproduction. I'm not sure that vintage is the right term for the real deal, but something like that.
If it's a modern gun that looks like an early AR, I consider it retro.
If it's a modern gun that looks like a specific early AR, I consider it a clone. I suppose you could do enhanced clone too, but at that point I see it more retro than clone.
The gun I'm building is retro, but nowhere near a clone.
The carbine I posted photos of was built on purpose to use with a retro AR15A2 rifle upper, using both uppers on the same lower receiver, hence the use of the A2 stock.
