Perhaps the obvious should be mentioned - you can have a mix of A or B.

This is just fine until a connector is bad, you cut off the old one, and use the wrong code for the new one.

As long as both ends of a run/cable are the same.

Haven't we seen cables that are plugged into a panel, then go disappear into the wall or ceiling and go many feet, where we can't tell where they go? You can't check the other end of such a cable if you have to terminate it.

So the fact that pre-made patch cables may be one or the other doesn't mean the scheme used for the patch cables needs to dictate what is used elsewhere.

That's true but the ready-mades damn well better not look hand-made, or there will be blood.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
