This seems to fix the Planetoid-Terrestrial class boundary issue and I cant spot any further taxonomic errors of this sort. One thought though, how far out of round can a planetoid be? Would an object much larger than the 50km long axis limit for the Asteroid class but no where near spherical count, like say Saturn's Hyperion? If the answer is no or not very, than a similar tweak to the Asteroid class could be made. We could say bodies less than .05 Earth masses that are spherical or close to it are Planetoids and those that are not are Asteroids.
