The
 Scipionyx monograph near certainly uses a version of the Theropod 
Working Group matrix (probably Senter's 2007 one with ten added taxa), which 
doesn't include any other putative 
neovenatorids or most of the characters supposedly grouping them with 
carnosaurs.  Similarly, Benson's matrix only includes a few coelurosaurs
 and doesn't include many of the characters which could place 
megaraptorans like Orkoraptor in that clade.  Any resolution would have 
to combine datasets and also include taxa like Zuolong.
