[Arthropod] non-insect-centric arthropod orthology gene sets

Dear arthropodists,

I'm in the process of building and testing a non-insect-centric arthropod
orthology gene set, that includes some transcript assembly for crustaceans
and ticks/Chelicerata.  These I hope to make publicly available this spring.
They are from already published data but the protein genes are
hard to find for some, except the daphnia magna set is not yet
public. These will I think help to place genes of the rest of the

If you have comments/suggestions for this, let me know. 
If in particular you know of public (or soon to be)
"complete" non-insect arthropod gene sets, clue me in.

A few of the transcript-data sets may be too poor to use (I get
only gene fragments, missing many orthologs), except maybe to
pick out a small subset of full genes. It appears currently that
the Chelicerata sets (now ixodes + spidermite, and very poor dog
tick assembly) are all artifactually incomplete, but the union of
these may provide a more complete Chelicerata orthology set.
