Classification schemes are always subject to change, and there are also 
many views.  The french view of ciliate classification is not the same as 
the German view, which differs from the Austrian, which differs from ther 
Russian, the American, the Canadian etc.  If we went from one group to 
another, there would be a shift in perspective.  Is that what you are 
referring to.  Or perhaps your question is directed at the IG-2 coverage 
of ciliates.  In which case why not contactthe author of that section 
directly and ask his/their views (start with Denis Lynn)

I was unaware that IG-2 is delayed.  Perhaps you could provide me with 
your understanding of the agenda and an indication of how far behind we are.
