Bare surface classes

Some bare surfaces do not fit into the current group of bare surface classes - how do we fix this?  

The ‘bare surfaces’ group of classes doesn’t fill the thematic space available – for example there is no bare rock category available below the alpine environment unless it’s a landslide or along a lake or river. We’re considering the merit if merging ‘Alpine Gravel and Rock’ with ‘River and Lakeshore Gravel and Rock’ into a new generic ‘Gravel and Rock’ class. What do you think?
