Currently, we only have:
For Bgee, I would suggest the following, as it's not possible to use several only_in_taxon:

Yeh, it's kind of arbitrary with all these gliding creatures. We use PATO to define wing, see: http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/UBERON_0000023
appendage and (has quality some aliform )
which is defined as... "Shape quality inhering in a bearer by virtue of the bearer's being shaped like a wing"
There is an argument for obsoleting wing. I'm not sure it does anyone any good. It might still be useful to have a kb somewhere that says that this PATO quality inheres in this entity in taxa A, B, ... but that is phenoscape's job, and we traditionally have these axioms outside the ontology.
I think we would still want to precoordinate fin vs limb of course... the differentiae here is classically autopod presence?
Closing this issue which is about TCs. For discussion on the general pattern see #727
