What bugs me about this post is the the taking of the *tree* structure to be fundamentally important, rather than investigating the properties of 4gons and seeing what structure they naturally lead to, all labels aside.
The notion of a (graphtheory) tree, though, being both mathematical and ubiquitous even through nonmath circles as a organizing principle, lends a pseudomathematical "rigor" and officious weight to the whole misbegotten proceeding.
Get the (correct, nontree) structure of properties across, put the labels on afterwards, note the historic confusions for what they are.
