The position of Archaeornithomimus seems interesting. what pulled it out so far 
that it lies
outside Maniraptora + Ornithomimosauria?

Also, you can add Aviatyrannus to that list above. how did it end up the sister 
of T. rex to the
exclusion of other tyrannosaurines? (or course, ignoring the huge discrepancy 
in stratigraphic
ages of the two)
