We show that if mutation rates are allowed to vary across states, then mutations no longer narrow the set of possible preditions. In particular, given any model of the effect of mutations, any invariant distribution of the "mutationless" process is close to an invariant distribution of the process with appropriately chosen small mutation rates.||Funding Details:||Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
