But, that can be good or bad, depending on how you look at it. Good, because it gives the whole fight a nice ceremonious, ancient, ring. Bad, because WTH does Mai have to do with the History of Garderobe? Then again, we never know, she may be one of the original founders or pillars?
I like to think that it's a play on words like with Tokiha Mai literally being Mai-hime in that she's sister to Takumi.
If one was to say that Fumi is the 'Queen', then Mai having a nickname of 'Mai-hime' could mean 'Dancing Princess' in that she compares to Shinso in terms of Mai-Battle?
So what, I'm a Mai-shipper
