Absolutely correct, I would think also that CP should be added/mentioned

[...] All these languages originated through some stepwise refinement. 

hmm, this is a bit euphemistic. Some of these are stepwise refined extensions, others are deliberate reductions

objects, and more ...

Yes, I would also appreciate to see such a review very much
