I don't know that the lavender/albino difference has anything to do with the tyrosinase enzyme.
The multistep reactions by which melanin is made is far more complicated than that. Frequently people just assume that a darker form of albino (as seen in blood pythons, corn snakes, ect) is a T plus. In fact to my knowledge boas are the only snake that I know for a fact had tissue samples analyzed to figure out the whole T / T- thing.
I would be hesitant to call this mutation a T anything.
