On that basis, every new development will be (and in the past would have
been) classified as 'freestyle', which would not be very helpful when each
of them subsequently developed into mainstream families that could not be
separately classified because they were already labelled as freestyle, or
each type would retrospectively have to be unclassified as freestyle before
being reclassified.   

The best label for things that don't currently fit any classification is:

"       "
