I like Audubon Core, even though it is long, it salutes a very famous and prolific illustrator and publicizer 
of natural history illustrations.  Certainly if Audubon had had other media in which to record his 
observations, he would have.  The name should pop up prominently and give a nice story in tribute for this 
standard.  Bravo.  Thanks too to Gregor for getting us to think along these lines!
