That there was a question took my breath away:

Pluto's Planet Status could be Jeopardized by Sedna Discovery

Scrolling down the page a bit we find the gist:

"Many astronomers have since been content to let the IAU and the public call Pluto a planet, while most of them think of it as a Kuiper Belt Object, one of many frozen worlds beyond Neptune. Some fight actively for Pluto's demotion while others think Sedna and its like should join the cast of planets."
