Its propagated by Garden Design Nursery just outside of Athens, Ga. Ive been told about it, but since I usually visit and drink craft beers with the owner, I cant recall.
Dave Freed, the owner, is one of the best maple growers in the business. He only grafts, but beautiful plants, that make great stock for further propagating for Bonsai.

His website has a few pictures and description. "Yellow leaves on burgundy bark", "Daidai haru Japanese maple was discovered as a seedling at our nursery. ... Some direct sun can be tolerated by Daidai haru Japanese maples, but protection from hot afternoon sun is important", Ive also seen somebody say it was a sport of a Katsura.

If I can remember or talk to Dave, ill get more details.

He is wholesale, but if you can contact him, he will take visitors.
The MrMaple guys might be propagating it these days, also.
