Question R170 Ignition Wire question

I have the ignition cylinder & housing removed to install a push-start system, and have a mystery wire.

Clockwise, starting at "1" (about 4 o'clock position when installed, number is embossed on black plastic plug cover that connects to rear of ignition):
1- [Purple] small starter relay
[Red] big +12V
[pink w/ Grn stripe] small ignition 3
[Red] big +12V
[Pink w/ Red stripe] big ignition 1 (ACC)
[Grn w/ White stripe] small ?????*
[Pink w/ Yellow stripe] big ignition 2
*What is the small Green w/ White (or faded pink) stripe wire?

I'm asking about the wires in the car, the aftermarket unit doesn't interface with everything in the rat's nest . I'm thinking the mystery wire might be a "key is removed" sensor output, to trigger the beeping when you forget your key?
