Well, suppose I called BCF "Dinogeorge's Theory of Dinosaur-Bird 
Relationships"? Or GOODD theory: George Olshevsky On Dinosaur Descent: as 
opposed to BADD theory (Birds Are Dinosaur Descendants)? Not exactly neutral 
names, are they? Having Kinman push the Kinman system of classification 
carries a cranky aroma with it. Charles Darwin didn't call his own theory 
Darwinian Evolution; other people did, later.
