There's a small problem with classifying Antarctosaurus as a rebbachisaurid. 
Antarctosauridae Olshevsky, 1978 has priority over Rebbachisauridae, which 
was created much more recently (don't recall citation/reference off top of 
head; Sereno? Wilson & Sereno?). And if one classifies Antarctosaurus as a 
"titanosaurid," a family name based on a nomen dubium, then one needs to 
choose the next available family name for Titanosauridae, which would be, 
guess what--Antarctosauridae Olshevsky, 1978.
