Templates need to be updated
Wikipedia cell and molecular biology articles contains some awesome big-picture showing templates comparing prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Such as this one template Template:Genetic translation and also Template:DNA replication (this template) , Template:Transcription and
However now we know, this prokaryote vs. eukaryote classification is quite an artificial classification, and 3 distinct group, eubacteria (bacteria in new sense), archaebacteria (archaea) and eukaryote works better.
So shouldn't we create 3 fields (total) (1 for bacteria, archaea and eukaryote, each)? Also, in some cases if we have lack of information about archea, we should keep empty place for archaea.
Also this-one template, Template:Genetic translation (Permalink) shows some rows for archaea; but they used "prokaryote" to mean eubacteria (bacteria of new meaning). But prokaryote does not mean eubacteria. Prokaryote includes both eubacteria (only "bacteria" in new use) and archaea.
So I think it is time to update the templates.
