In fact, there's even a case where one family became another

Some cells sticking together doesn't make them a new family. The fact that taxonomic keys are a rather inexact tool is hardly a compelling argument for such a grand claim.

Do you wish to pretend that in anything other than a very gross and crude morphological sense they 'became' another family? If so you should provide some evidence to support that.

TTFN,

I've not made any claim except that, morphologically, they key out as being in a different family.

Well clearly you did since you said that you had an example of one family becoming another.

TTFN,
