Hi Andrea,

   I think it's interesting from a historical perspective, but since it
   hasn't been changed since 1976 (if I remember correctly) it's sadly 
   out of date.

   The standard used to be Cronquist (published around 1987) and is now
   shifting towards the Royal Horticultural Society and their RHS Plant

   So if you don't have anything else, keep it.  If you do, there's no 
   point unless you want to trace old nomenclature.
