By keeping Lambeosauridae a separate family, you can emphasize the closeness
of the other subfamilies, which would all be included in Hadrosauridae:

Suborder Iguanodontia
  Family Dryosauridae
  Family Camptosauridae
  Parafamily Iguanodontidae
  Family Hadrosauridae
    Subfamily Claosaurinae
    Subfamily Maiasaurinae
    Subfamily Gryposaurinae
    Subfamily Hadrosaurinae (required by ICZN)
    Subfamily Saurolophinae
    Subfamily Edmontosaurinae
  Family Lambeosauridae
