Multicellular Protistas

I don't feel comfortable with considering the green algae to be "multicellular
protistas" rather than plants.  Their photosynthetic pigments and stored 
photosynthate are that of plants.  Many feel the rest of the plant kingdom 
descended from the green algae.  The Chlorophta seem more at home in Plantae
than the rather heterogenous Protista.
