Very nice wiki page, Stan! Thanks for that.

One thing I wonder is whether we need to add Taxon to that list. I know
that in discussions people have expressed conflicting opinions about
whether there is a continuum from Organism to Taxon. If we can't dispel
that, we'll have to conclude what that relationship actually is formally
before we get very far with Organism. I don't want to spawn a discussion of
that here in the mailing list, but I would really like to have that
straight at the same time we try to make other definitions. Is it OK to get
that into the mix?
