"*Subdivision of skeleton which consists of the bones of the vertebral column, the thoracic cage and the pelvis."

Why does the definition have an asterisk at the start? Does this denote anything special, or is it a typo?

The definition and the part hierarchy exclude the skull, but AFAICT many define it to include the skull.

ZFA, TAO and XAO use the term "post-cranial axial skeleton" - perhaps FMA might consider this as a label? Or at least a synonym plus explanatory note

    This is now resolved in FMA3 - axial skeleton includes the skull
