Abstract.-- Phylogenetic estimation has largely come to rely on explicitly model-based methods. This approach requires
that a model be chosen and that that choice be justified. To date, justification has largely been accomplished through use of
likelihood-ratio tests (LRTs) to assess the relative fit of a nested series of reversible models. While this approach certainly
