The only point of disagreement is how the various branches are classified
into superbranches.  The Wikipedia page gives the traditional view,
as is stated there; the Ethnologue takes the more modern viewpoint,
which abandons any attempt to make superbranches and lists each branch
as directly from Uralic.  The truth is doubtless more complex than either.
