Sensor size diagram - feedback, please

I've created a diagram intended to show the relative sizes of sensors used in DSLRs. I'm posting it here to get possible feedback and criticism before I use it more places on Wikipedia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:DSLR_Sensor_Sizes.jpg

I think the interesting thing to note is that the difference between Four Thirds and APS-C is less than the difference between APS-C and full frame.

Incidentally, what inspired me was this message and diagram on this forum: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1022&message=25381203

Unfortunately, I believe that that diagram is based on an incorrect sensor size for Four Thirds - there seems to be two sizes announced, and the correct one should be the "image area" size, 17.3 mm × 13.0 mm. (I'm assuming that's the size one sees in the announcements of other cameras.)

Anyway, feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

Rennie
