Why aren't baltids included in the Cromagnid subsection?

Why aren't baltids included in the Cromagnid subsection?

Because the Baltid/Osteuropid spectrum is a derivate and not Cromagnid proper like Dalofaelid or Palaeatlantid.

Baltids being "Baltised Cromagnoids" which means they being (at least partially) reduced, infantilised, pyknomorphised, brachymorphised and borealised, having quite often (especially Eastbaltid category) Lappoid influences as well.

The line goes like that:
Eastcromagnid - Westbaltid - Baltid (proper, standard) - Eastbaltid (Lappoid influenced, heavily Borealised) - Lappoid/Lappid.

Eastcromagnids = Cromagnid category in the narrowest sense, but are no real Baltids and low in numbers in Eastern Europe nowadays. Westbaltids being at least CromagnOID.
