We've got some separate terms in signaling for both hormones and their receptors:

steroid hormone mediated signaling pathway ; GO:0043401
steroid hormone receptor signaling pathway ; GO:0030518

glucocorticoid mediated signaling pathway ; GO:0043402
glucocorticoid receptor signaling pathway ; GO:0042921

Do we really want both? I assume they're to fit in with the grouping terms:

hormone-mediated signaling pathway ; GO:0009755
intracellular receptor-mediated signaling pathway ; GO:0030522

Should they at least be linked? (at the moment, they're just linked because they share their receptor activity children)

    The only argument I could think of for keeping separate terms would be if there are any glucocorticoid|steroid signaling pathways that don't involve a glucocorticoid|steroid receptor. I don't know of any, so I'd be happy to see them merged.
