[Taxacom] Order Campanulales (worth maintaining?)

Hi all,
      Since I haven't updated my angiosperm classification in almost 2
years, I was looking at some possible changes, especially some minor
coding changes.
       However, in the process, I also began to wonder about whether to
continue separating Order Campanulales from Order Asterales (which were
merged in APG II).  Although Order Campanulales may now only include two
families (Campanulaceae and Rousseaceae), it is still rather speciose.          
     Anyway, I have no strong inclination one way or the other in this
case.  So I wonder if any taxacomers have any preferences one way or the
other?  Lump Order Campanulales into Asterales, or keep them as separate
sister Orders?
