Taken from #1243

This is an interesting case worth independent discussion.

See the explanation here:


ectoderm gives rise to epithelial linings in mouth, endoderm in gut. Teeth should have no endodermal contribution. It seems the placement of basibranchial 2 teeth (from pharyngeal arch 4) is causing confusion here.

The reason is that the assertion that the resp primordium comes entirely from endoderm is the issue
