The name Archaeopterygidae exists. It just wasn't used for decades because it was thought to contain nothing but Archie itself.

If we define "bird" in a way that potentially includes dromaeosaurs and probably oviraptorosaurs... and if we can keep *Epidendrosaurus* out. Otherwise I don't agree with "undisputed". :-)
