The article is interesting. The termite and cockroach have always been extremely close orders, in fact the only orders that were found to be so similar. The paper/argument is that there is no longer an order distinction between termites and cockroaches.

Without the article, I would have disagreed. The social hierarchy along with a queen, mutual symbiosis of gut fauna, chemistry (formic acid?) are all thigs to classify them separately.
