I don't know if this is the proper place for this...  if not please move.

I notice that the categories of "cruiser" versus "destroyer" versus "frigate" versus "corvette" can be confusing sometimes.  Especially so because you really have to go by what the individual navy is calling her and there is no international adhered to standards for this.

So, would it better to classify them all as "surface combatants" and if needed, break them down by tonnage say -
"over 10000", "7500-9999", etc. with maybe the exception of the categories of "gun cruiser", etc for pre missile age ships?

What is everyones thoughts?

Good idea or have I bumped my head?

I would rather stick to the international standard than come up with something new that's only used in Shipspotting.com.
