Having been the creator and only major contributor to that page, I just 
wanted to point out that it's not very good.  The list of classes is in 
no way complete.  I think I have all of the major ones, but there are 
several random ones missing.

The descriptions aren't very good.  I wanted them to be short and 
concise, but I think they've just ended up vague.

The list of parents and children are probably missing a number of items.

The list should probably be broken up into groups like A-M and N-Z as 
this large of a list becomes unwieldy to edit.

Also, there should probably be a list of each of the type of attributes, 
such as REL.
