This is true - he doesn't technically have to be a dilute to be a "Pali" since it's just appearance, though the dilute is what produced the color most of the time. What Arabian gene would cause this color? I don't know a lot about silver, but would that do it, at least to the mane and tail? I guess you could get that color of chestnut since it comes in so many shades, but that doesn't explain the mane and tail...
One horse I know had a something-or-other plume, which caused an all-black horse to have an all-white tail, and it was a straight Egyptian Arab. So these random genes are rare, but still there... But not dilute!
