In principle it's totally discretionary, I think. Unlike the
Humakti biz, it doesn't directly help you 'resist call of kin',
as it were, but that may be fairly academic, given the radical
nature of the step. His next tasks would be a) not get killed, if
the pissing-off has been mutual, and b) find another community
to take him in, if not another clan, then a warband or whatever,
to avoid a) in the longer term...

If he wants a mythological rationale, or a ritual to perform to
add a bit of sting for the clan (banging the door loudly on his
way out, as it were), I'm sure any myth where Orlanth disowns one
of his kin for acting dishonorably would serve, whether or not
Orlanth laves the clan, which seems a bit problematic. OTOH,
there are bound to have been ancestral figures or local tradition
religious heroes than have done such things...
