A definitive Periodic Table?

My recent Research Highlight on ChemistryViews.org about the nature of the Periodic Table of the Elements attracted a lot of readers and has stimulated an ongoing debate among those arguing as to whether or not there is a definitive format for this iconic tool. Intriguingly, however, the article and ensuing discussion themselves have also now spawned a development in this field courtesy of UCLA chemistry professor Eric Scerri who has come up with yet another format for the PT. Could this be the ultimate layout for the chemical elements?
