You say the reptilia is a taxon that consists of all descendents of a common reptilian ancestor, minus the birds and mammals.

What use does the group serve, then, if it's not complete? In other words, what does "reptile" mean, if it does not refer to a group of organisms more closely related to members of the group than to members of other groups?
