Think about groups like (dicot) herbs/trees, for example. They are extremly predictive in *many* characters and hugely polyphyletic at the same time.

Does anyone seriously doubt that, because of the fact of organic evolution, the
classification that maximizes predictivity will be the one most fully based on
genealogy/phylogeny?
