You did not say "extant dinosaurs"; you said simply "dinosaurs." And when someone says "dinosaurs," I assume they mean all "dinosaurs," not a select group of highly derived dinosaurs.

But, if it makes you happy, the literature I mentioned in my messages >are concerned with highly derived, avialian, feathered, flying and >secondarily flightless, theropods.

Ooooooohhhhhhhh.... you mean "birds"!!!
