  There is no such thing as a primitively or "primarily" flightless
organism, because no animal trends towards a state with the intent to
reach it, such as the ability to fly. Appling a possible conclusion
doesn't mean the a posteriori conclusion applies to an organism. Okay
... dinosaurs are not primarily flightless, and no dinosaur will be,
even birds.
