New type taxonomy

When I was fresh out of school I wanted to do a grandiose thesis to prove myself and ended up working for 8 years without my diploma. Now I just want to do a simple thesis project to be able to teach a couple of classes.

I am aiming to propose a new type taxonomy system for latin alphabet typefaces and I would like your valuable opinion to help me decide if this is reasonable and achievable.

I know typophiles are not fond of type classifications because they tend to misrepresent the universe of the typographic inventory. My aim is no to try to create a new definitive or better system but to explore a different perspective.
