I agree.  It is not the fault of either the _Ceratops_ or _Titanosaurus_
type material that their significance was eclipsed by later discoveries.
But if we want stability in phylogenetic usage, then we should be anchoring
our clades in the genera that we name them after.  (This only applies to
family-level clades.)

Is the parenthetical statement to suggest that higher clades like Titanosauria should be kept?
