    public interface SMTaxonomyClassic
    extends SMTaxonomy
    The classic taxonomy measure is calculated by both pre-initialised node weights and several strategies.

    The node weights are pre-initialised and all nodes of one level have the same weight. The node weights can be calculated by the following function:

     weight(node) = (height(node) / (maxlevels - 1)) - (1 / (maxlevels - 1))
     

    Where 'maxlevels' denote the number of levels in the taxonomy and the function 'height' starts with 1 for the root and increases the height for each level, e.g., the childs of root have the height 2.
