So do I, even though I can't find much to say against Enigmosauria. A
sister-group relationship of *Archaeopteryx* and "dromaeosaurs" definitely
sounds better than having segnosaurs in between. Looks like they use few
characters on the whole. Well.

Definitely. Though without *Sinovenator* the character states for
troodontids would have been wrong anyway :-)
